I have experience as a Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Lead Teacher as well as Leadership experience as both Assistant Director and School Director. My husband Adam and I have three amazing children who all attended Primrose. Primrose is more than a school for us; it is a part of our family!

    Amber Rhodes

    Regional Director

    Hi! My name is Amber Rhodes and I am the Regional Director at Primrose School at Balmoral and Primrose School of Atascocita. I have worked with Primrose Schools since August 2013. My experience with Primrose started as an Early Preschool teacher, and throughout my years, I grew a love for teaching more than just children. I am passionate about Early Education and mentoring teachers and leadership members to excel in their education careers. Primrose provides a solid foundation for future educators, and I enjoy being a part of their journeys. Leading and educating fellow employees around me is what I do best.

    I have a daughter, Addisyn, who also attended Primrose most of her childhood. Addisyn loves to dance, so I get to spend most of my free time being a Dance Mom and watching her do what she loves most. The rest of my free time is spent eating crawfish and alligator hunting with my family in Louisiana. Geaux Tigers! 

    I love being a part of this Primrose Family and spending my days with our wonderful staff and families!

    Education Coach

    HI! My name is Chasitee Collins, and I am the Education Coach here at Primrose School of Atascocita. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I have worked in childcare since 2012, and I have experience working with grades Pre-k-6th in General Education and SPED. I love to see the smiles and giggles on the children’s faces daily. As the Education Coach, I find immense joy in my job because I get to help the teachers not only be successful every day, but I am able to witness them being their best versions of themselves for the children daily!

    I grew up in Houston and bought our forever home with my husband in Atascocita. Our Goldendoodle, Draco, is very active and we love taking him to the dog park. You can find us on the weekends exploring new places all over Houston, going to the interactive aquarium, or just hanging out watching movies.

    Bridget Janosec

    Administrative Assistant

    Hello! I am SUPER excited to be a part of Primrose of Atascocita. Children and early education have been near and dear to my heart for as long as I can remember. Growing up I was always the neighborhood babysitter. In high school, I was a part of the FHA and Early Childhood Professionals program. All grown up I have been a nanny, Mother’s Day Out teacher, and a caregiver and manager at a drop-in facility. Purposeful play and creating out-of-the-box ways to learn is my passion for kids. I also enjoy the business side - planning, organizing, and creating systems to help teachers have the tools to be successful.

    I am known to be a workaholic, but when I am not at work, I am committed to serving in my church. You can find me each week either running sound or helping with the children’s ministry. On my days off, I enjoy relaxing at home with my 2 cats, and when the weather is nice you can find me at the beach reading and trying not to get a sunburn!
