Hire me

Hi! I am Amber Francis - thank you for visiting my page!

I am a teacher at my alma mater, El Dorado Springs R-2 High School. Here, I teach journalism and ICR (English). It is important to me and my family to be a part of this community because we were raised here and feel a strong connection with the people and businesses here. We love being a Bulldog!

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Ben. He is a Fire Investigator with the State of Missouri's Fire Marshall Office. Together, we have two boys, Dill (5) and Sawyer (2).

Before teaching, I had an interesting career. I started at the IRS, moved to developing companies for a small business, and later found my niche in education by recruiting for Cottey College in Nevada, Missouri. Women's education is important to me, and I loved what Cottey did for her students. I am still passionate about Cottey!

I have been trying to switch careers to teaching for several years, but finally this year a perfect position opened up. It has been a seamless transition for me and I adore working with students every single day. I am so blessed to be here and so thankful for this opportunity!

I'm currently working on my Master's in Education degree from UMSL.
