Received my Bachelors of Science from Murray State University and my Masters in Teacher Leadership and Environmental Education.



My first year of teaching was the last year for Morningside Elementary School to be open.  I felt very fortunate to have been a part of the Morningside Elementary School family.  Since then, I have been with Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary and our school family continues to grow and grow with a loving and wonderful group of people. I have had the priviledge of teaching Kindergarten, First and Second grade.


My name is Carol Bugg and am married to Dave Bugg.  Dave is the Physcial Education teacher at Millbrooke Elementary.  My son, Nick, his wife Ashley and their girls, Emma and Kelsey live here in Hopkinsville.  Emma is my first grandbaby and is now 5 and Kelsey is 2 years old, whom I adore and love spending time with.  My daughter, Lauren, lives in Woodstock, Georgia.  Lauren is married to a wonderful guy, Ben.  My husband's daughter, Shannna, lives in Danville, KY, with her husband, Jeff and two of the sweetest girls, Abigail and Miriam.  Owen is our grandson who is all boy!

I was raised in a large family.  I have 4 sisters, and 1 brother.  Even though we all live across the U.S., we are a very close family.  We stay in touch quite often thanks to group texting!  Several of my family members are or have been educators.  I decided to follow in their footsteps.
