Four of her children are homeschool graduates and she is savoring her time left with her last 3.

Tambra Peterson – Sales Training & Development Assistant
Tambra is from Southern California, but raised her family for 20+ years in Spokane, WA. She recently moved to Colorado, near the front range of the Rocky Mountains, where she lives with her husband of 38 years and one daughter, who is still at home. She was a Dental Hygienist in her early years, but became a full time stay-at-home mom once she started a family. She has three grown children… a married son, (and a sweet daughter-in-law and two little granddaughters), and two daughters, who are both working on college classes. She began homeschooling in 1995, and after 25 years, she “retired” when she graduated her youngest in 2020. During her homeschool journey, she led a local support group, ran a large co-op, and was a homeschool conference speaker in WA state. In 2017 she began working in the Sales Dept. for The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine as an Advertising Sales Rep. She then became part of the Sales Training & Development Team in 2020, where she has since worked as a mentor to new Sales Reps. She loves all things motherhood and homeschooling and considers The Old Schoolhouse® one of the richest blessings and most useful resources the Lord provided during her homeschooling years, and she is so happy to be a part of the TOS family/team.
