Staff update, k5 full day – Mrs. Joy Harrison

New Covenant School is excited to announce that we have hired Mrs. Joy Harrison as our Full Day Kindergarten teacher for the 2019-2020 school year!

Mrs. Harrison and her family.

Mrs. Harrison has been teaching for 13 years. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Clemson University. She also has an add-on certification in Early Childhood from Anderson University. Mrs. Harrison has taught second grade in Greenville County and Anderson School District 5. She also taught 3K and 4K at Trinity United Methodist Preschool. During the last two years of her career, she has been a Reading and Math Interventionist for first and second graders at North Pointe Elementary School.

Joy has been married to her high school sweetheart, Mark, for almost 18 years. They have two children, Hampton, age 13, and Hallee, age 10. Hampton will be in the 8th grade at McCants middle school next year, and Hallee will be joining her mom at New Covenant in the 5th grade.

Mrs. Harrison has one chocolate lab named Sadie. She enjoys spending time with her family, walking, watching Hampton play baseball and Hallee twirl baton. She also enjoys cooking/baking, reading, and riding bikes with her family on vacations to Hilton Head Island. Mrs. Harrison and her family are very active at Concord Baptist Church.

Two of her favorite Bible verses are “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14  “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Mrs. Harrison is excited for this new adventure with the Kindergartners at New Covenant. She is praying that God will use her in a mighty way to teach and lead these children during the 2019-2020 school year!
