I am the area manager of three Pre-K programs in DCSD.  I grew up in Portland, Oregon but moved here to Colorado in 1996 and haven't looked back.  I have my BS in Business Administration from the University of Denver and my Director's License as well.  When I'm not at school, I'm teach fitness classes or training for runs.  I'm hoping to run my first full marathon this year.  I have a pre-teen daughter and the two of us love to do anything active outdoors.  I'm proud of all of the great things that are happening in the Little Cubs program and look forward to getting to know all of the new families.

Amy Largent Bio Picture  

Hi, I'm Amy Largent, the Program Supervisor for the Little Cubs at Mountain View
Primary! I studied Early Childhood Education at Arapahoe Community College and
have my Large Center Director Certification. I have been with Douglas County
since 2012 and I love this school district. I’m currently enrolled in ECE classes to
get my degree in Education. I love Colorado & I love teaching preschool and Pre-K.
I love the funny stories I get to tell my family every day about what happened at
school. I enjoy spending time with my daughter, going to Avalanche games when
we can, playing the piano, funny movies, listening to music, shopping, cooking and
reading. I'm very honored to be a part of the Mountain View Primary community!

Stephanie Barto

Lead Teacher

Hi, my name is Stephanie Barto and I have been teaching in early childhood for the past 12 years.  Teaching pre-kindergarten brings great joy to me.  My goals are to make learning fun and to show love and kindness to one another.  I have a Child Development Associates Credential from the council for professional recognition and I am currently back in college working on my Directors license in early childhood. 

My family and I moved here from Texas and we are loving Colorado.  We love to go hiking, fishing, and going to the lake.  I am happily married with 3 sons and two fur babies that keep me busy.  We are also a big football and soccer family.  If I am not teaching you can usually find me on a soccer field, my second favorite place to be.

I can’t wait to meet your sweet child and for your family to be a part of our Little Cubs Family.
