Our school board is made of people who care about education. They bring various perspectives, gifts, and talents to the table. Chairman of the board Cathy Gilbert leads the other board members, Janet Mora, Patti Johnston, and Tammy Glaser in following the by-laws of Harvest and laws governing non-profit (501(3)c) and federal tax-exempt organizations. The board meets the second Monday of the month as needed and welcomes parent(s)/guardian(s) to attend and ask questions. Please contact the headmaster or chairman if you have questions about the school, board, or key documents.
Cathy Gilbert, Board Chair Person
A native of Charlotte, N.C., I grew up in Miami, Florida and finally escaped forever in 1992. I have loved making Clarendon County my home since that time and it is my intention to spend the rest of my life here.
I am the product of public schools and a graduate of the University of South Florida, where I studied Mass Communications; primarily journalism, public relations and advertising.
Since my time in Clarendon County, I have worked on the State Superintendent of Education campaign of Dr. Sylvia Weinberg Clark, been a church secretary and bookkeeper, served as the public relations coordinator at the Sumter County Library and was the Managing Editor of the Manning Times and the Clarendon Citizen before my retirement in 2011.
I have been involved in many community projects including Habitat for Humanity, Friends of the Library, the Taste of Clarendon, Relay for Life, Leadership Clarendon, Clarendon Memorial Hospital Ambassadors and others.
I believe that school choice is a very private family decision and I am excited to have another alternative in Clarendon County. Harvest is a unique, loving and God-centered home for our children and I look forward to being a part of their lives.
If you have any questions you feel need to be addressed by the Board, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am a graduate of Tulane University in Speech/Language Pathology, Elementary Education, Learning Disabilities, and School Administration. I have spent many years in Louisiana public school classrooms and also serve as the founding director of the Chartwell Center in New Orleans, a non-profit autism program for children with autism spectrum disorder.
I have served as a past Supervisor of Autism Programs for the Louisiana State Department of Education where I have convened the Louisiana State Autism Team in 2009. I have also served as the Executive Director of the State Interagency Coordinating Council for the Louisiana Governor’s Office of Community Programs.
I have co-authored two books on autism, The Sensory Connection and An OT and SLP Team Approach: Sensory and Communication Strategies that Work. I am currently in private practice and an independent consultant for issues focused primarily in the area of autism. I speak both in-state and regionally to families and professionals on topics related to autism and associated disorders.

I graduated from the Naval Academy in 1985 and planned to make the Navy a career. I tracked submarines, earned a masters degree, and recruited for the Navy. God had a better plan in mind. He gave me a loving family: Steve, my husband, and our children, Pamela and David. After our daughter developed autism, I found my true calling in education. I left the Navy in 1995 and started homeschooling.
Shifting to Charlotte Mason's ideas began in 2000 with my children and later in church ministry. I was blessed to join AmblesideOnline when it born! God has let me share these ideas with families, speak at conferences, and train public, charter, and private school teachers. For two years, a team of educators and I designed curriculum for the first Charlotte Mason charter school in the USA. I'm part of prov-en-der and similar groups. I'm thrilled to inspire teachers, students, and families to learn and love learning.
