About Mrs. Vahrenkamp


Welcome to kindergarten! I’m so excited to spend the year with your child and can’t wait to get to know your family.

This will be my 14th year teaching and I’ve spent the last 7 years at UP. Throughout my career I’ve taught in Dallas ISD, Arlington ISD and Birdville ISD. My teaching experience ranges from kindergarten thru second grade. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Texas Tech University. I earned my Master’s degree in Teacher Leadership with a specialization in Autism from Lamar University. I grew up in Bellville, a small town outside of Houston.

I’m the oldest of three siblings. I have a younger sister and brother. My husband Josh and I have been married for 12 years and are proud parents to our four year old daughter Mila, and little sister, Maxwell. In between soccer games and dance classes, my family and I love to travel and explore new restaurants in Dallas.

As an elementary teacher, my goal is to treat each student as if they were my own. The University Park Elementary community is the absolute best and I'm proud of be a UP Panther. I’m so excited to have your child join me this year in kindergarten!



We had a successful Boosterthon Fun Run today! Thanks to all of the parents that came out to cheer us on. All of the kids completed their 35 laps. Way to go Panthers!!!
