Our Advisory Board is a round table of homeschool leaders who give their time to exchange ideas about the needs of the home-school community.  We invite interested leaders to contact us.  We listen and assist as requested to create events while bringing up the leaders in Texas.  We appreciate the home school leaders who give of their time to be a part of this round table of leaders.

Sheila Gilmore

Sheila Gilmore

Advisory Board Member

The Gilmores began homeschooling in California in 1998 when their oldest son started Middle School. After their move to Maine in 1999, the kids had to go to public school for various reasons – a decision that they came to regret. When the oldest son was about to begin 9th grade, Sheila and Ralph took a leap of faith and pulled all 6 of their children out of the public school and began a new homeschooling journey. Now, 16 years later, all their children have graduated, gone to college and pursued families and careers. Sheila has been leading a Co-op or Support group for home schoolers since 2000 and is now the New Home Schooler Shepherd of Vista Hills Homeschool Ministry and gives classes regularly on Getting Started in Home Education. They now have 8 grandchildren, most of whom will continue to be homeschooled in the near future.
