Ms. Cinthy Harner
Learning Resource Coordinator
My favorite Bible verses are Ephesians 6:13 “Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.” And Philippians 4:1 “Therefore, my beloved brethren whom I long to see, my joy and crown, in this way stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.”
I hold a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Journalism, Public Relations from the University of Maryland, a Master’s of Education from Virginia Tech, a Master’s of Special Education, and a Master’s of Secondary Education from Grand Canyon University. I also have training in Orton Gillingham Reading through the Institute of Multi-Sensory Education Comprehensive and Intermediate. I am also trained in Auditory foundation skills through Heggerty Phonemic Awareness.
I hold a Virginia State Teaching License with endorsements for K12 Special Education, English, and PE.
I am an active participant with the local Scouting community. At the troop and crew levels as well as council Activities & Service Chair. I am the upcoming course director for the 2022 National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT).
My favorite word is yet. I believe every person has a gift, and the key to a solid education is finding that gift, and helping students develop their strengths to overcome areas of need.
I have one son who graduated from MVCA in 2020 and is now attending LFCC to be an engineer. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, photography, reading and shooting sports. And, one of my hobbies is my education.

Mrs. Joy Grey
Mrs. Grey has been working at Mountain View Christian Academy since 2019. She teaches K-10th grade physical education, she is a teachers aide and in charge of recess for our elementary students, and substitutes when called upon for K-12th grade students.
Mrs. Grey grew up in Charles Town, WV and played sports throughout her childhood and still loves to participate in a friendly game, no matter what sport, as an adult. She graduated from Jefferson High School in 1986. In 1988 she started her banking career and had the opportunity to hold various positions throughout the years. Those positions included being a teller, assistant head teller, collection manager, administrative assistant, loan officer, and office manager.
She married her soulmate Jason in April of 2003 and in February of 2006 they adopted their son Blake from Guatemala. When Blake was two he started out on the daycare side of the Academy at Training His Tots and will be graduating from MVCA next year. Being a mom is her favorite responsibility in adult life.
In her classes she hopes to encourage sportsmanship, teamwork, personal growth, and Christlike attitudes over a must win attitude. She finds sport/exercise to be a great stress reliever, escape from frustrations, and an opportunity to strengthen one’s self no matter winning or losing. She will promote the power of decision making and goal setting as life skills and educate students on the importance of maintaining a healthy body and mind through positive behaviors. She believes in the value of arming kids with practical, lifelong health skills, which cross over subject matter and develop character.
She is also a caregiver for Home Instead Senior Care and cares for her 91 year old father who is her #1 client.
