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!
