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 Reverend Denman Isgett leads the other board members, Janet Mora, 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 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.

Janet Mora, M.A. C.C.C., S.L.P.
At this point in my life, God has lead me to volunteering in my community. Currently, I continue to provide training on autism, tutor in a local public school to help students improve their reading and math skills, and assist with Gulfport's Chancery Court, where I assist the judge, in fact finding cases over disputes in matters of adoptions, guardianships, and other state matters.
My background has prepared me for what I do today. I am a graduate of Tulane University in Speech/Language Pathology, Elementary Education, Learning Disabilities, and School Administration. I 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.
I served as a past Supervisor of Autism Programs for the Louisiana State Department of Education and as the Executive Director of the State Interagency Coordinating Council for the Louisiana Governor’s Office of Community Programs. I spent many years in private practice and as an independent consultant, primarily in the area of autism. I co-authored two books on autism, The Sensory Connection and An OT and SLP Team Approach: Sensory and Communication Strategies that Work.
Tammy Glaser, M.S. O. R.
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.

In Memory of Cathy Gilbert
We fondly remember our first chairman of the board and fearless champion, Cathy Gilbert. She was present at our very first Harvest experience after the founders made the decision to start a school. She marveled at the power of narration and how she would have benefited from a Charlotte Mason education. She helped us grow from a handful of people with an idea to a nonprofit private school with a building, board, and by-laws. In October 2019, she lost her fight for life and we will always be thankful for her service.
In Honor of Patti Johnston
Anyone who knew Cathy Gilbert also knew her dear friend Patti Johnston who joined the board when it was formed. Patti helped us make so many decisions and helped us become the thriving school that we are today. We will always remember her dedication in finding the best deal for those consumable supplies that a young school goes through quickly. She retired from her work on the board in October 2019 and we are grateful for her service.
