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!

  Marcela Sainz
Lead Teacher - Little Cubs

Hi, I’m Marcela Sainz and am excited to be the newest Lead Teacher for the Little Cubs program! This will not be my first time working with children. I previously worked as an assistant for 12 years in a Montessori School. I love working with preschoolers they are a fun age to be with. I attended school at Arapahoe Community College and received my certificate in Early Childhood Education/Director. Am continuing my education and working on my way to a Bachelor’s degree. I have two wonderful girls 5 and 8.  There is never a dull moment and I also have a wonderful husband. I am fluent in Spanish and slowly learning some French. I enjoy reading books, spending time with my family, shopping, traveling, and working on puzzles. I am looking forward to getting to know all the families.

Elizabeth Castillo

Assistant Teacher - Little Cubs


Hi, my name is Elizabeth Castillo. I studied education at a college in Florida back where I grew up. Once I moved out here I was able to continue my studies in early childhood education. I have always loved working with young children for as long as I can remember. I have helped out with children church and I have also worked at a preschool when I was living in Florida as an assistant. I am a very family oriented person and love to go out and hike and see all the beautiful sites of Colorado. I can’t wait to get to meet your kids and get to know them and watch them grow and learn throughout their preschool years. :)
