Working with Get Variables - Contact form not showing up in the browser

Hey guys so I added all the conditionals to my contact form but when I try to view it in the browser it just shows my the header and footer and the contact heading but doesn't display the actual form

here's my code I'm sure theres just a typo somewhere or something I missed out

        $name = $_POST["name"];
    $email = $_POST["email"];
    $message = $_POST["message"];
    $email_body = "";

    $email_body = $email_body . "Name: " . $name . "\n";
    $email_body = $email_body . "Email: " . $email . "\n";
    $email_body = $email_body . "Message: " . $message;

    // TODO: Send Email

    header("Location: contact.php?status=thanks");
$pageTitle = "Contact Mike";
$section = "contact";

include('inc/header.php'); ?>

    <div class="section page">

        <div class="wrapper">


            <?php if ($_isset($_GET["status"]) AND $_GET["status"] == "thanks") { ?>
                <p>Thanks for the email! I&rsquo;ll be in touch shortly.</p>
            <?php } else { ?>

                <p>I&rsquo;d love to hear from you! Complete the form to send me an email.</p>

                <form method="post" action="contact.php">

                                <label for="name">Name</label>
                                <input type="text" name="name" id="name">
                                <label for="email">Email</label>
                                <input type="text" name="email" id="email">
                                <label for="message">message</label>
                                <textarea type="text" name="message" id="message"></textarea>
                    <input type="submit" value="send">

            <?php } ?>



<?php include('inc/footer.php'); ?>
