Hello – My name is Donna Jo Bugg and I am the guidance counselor at Spottsville Elementary School. I have a Masters Degree in Elementary Counseling and a Rank 1 in Secondary Counseling. I have taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, 4th, and 5th grades. I have also been a guidance counselor at another elementary school and Henderson County High School. I am so excited to now be the guidance counselor at Spottsville!
I am married to Ron Bugg and have two children – Wes and Brooke.. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends outside of work.
My goal for our students is to help bridge barriers that hinder academic and social success. Sometimes the barriers may be very small and students just need a listening ear; other times issues can be larger. Either way, I am here to help students learn to solve these issues that can hinder school success.
I do visit children in their classrooms and together we address making good choices regarding classwork, friends and behavior. Please ask your child from time to time what they are learning in Guidance class.
Parenting can be a challenging opportunity in which support can be helpful. I am happy to be of assistance to parents/caretakers as together we raise our children to be successful both academically and socially.
Please contact me if I can be of assistance to you or your family.
