"I love these little people; and it is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us." -Charles Dickens
Hello Cedar Grove Family! My name is Joy Harvell. I graduated from Francis Marion University with a BA in Early Childhood Education. I also hold a Master's Degree in Reading from Grand Canyon University. I have taught kindergarten, first and second grade in the 18 years that I have been teaching.
I am married to Rev. Michael Joe Harvell. We have been married for 25 years and have two amazing daughters, Gracie and Hope. Gracie is 18 and Hope is 13. We love going to the beach, camping and hanging out with our family and friends.
This will be my first year at Cedar Grove as a teacher, but I have many fond memories of growing up as a student at Cedar Grove. I am so excited to be back home teaching kindergarten!
