Frogs (Older 1’s)
Barbara Harville has had the joy and privilege of being a teacher at CCC since 2004, two years of those as a substitute. She has a degree in Early Childhood Education from Oklahoma State University and was involved in some area of preschool/children’s ministry many years before teaching at CCC. She has taught in the Frog’s Class since 2015, her favorite age group of all.
Born and raised in Oklahoma, Barbara and her husband, Kent, and daughter, Allison, picked up their roots from Oklahoma in 2002 and moved to Franklin, joining ClearView within a couple months. They have two married daughters and five grandchildren.
At ClearView, Barbara also enjoys teaching 1st through 4th grade Sunday school at the 8:15 hour, and has had the joy of teaching some of the children she taught previously at CCC.

Joy Duffy is new to the Nashville area, but not new to classrooms, young people, and teaching. She graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies, and spent several years teaching all ages as a substitute teacher in Orange County. Joy and her husband Matt were married in 2003, and ran a very busy construction company for 15 years. They have 3 children, who were homeschooled until their move to Williamson County.
Outside of her home classroom, Joy also worked with all ages as lay staff at their home church in Huntington Beach for many years, from volunteering in the nursery and AWANA cubbies to mentoring students in the College Ministry. The Duffy family moved to Franklin, Tennessee in June of 2019 from southern California, and all are loving life here. When not in the classroom, “mommy”-ing, or keeping the house running smoothly, Joy loves pursuing creative hobbies, but always makes time for her passion for books. Joy is excited to be a part of the CCC staff and invest in the lives of the children in her community.
