Instructional Support

The OMPH Instructional Support Program is designed to provide academic support to the students, staff and parents. The goal of instructional support is to provide instruction to students using a variety of strategies and tools needed to achieve academic success and become successful lifelong learners.


Students are referred by classroom teachers based on academic performance and test taking skills. Students are seen on a regular basis or on an as-needed basis. The small group or individual setting encourages students to build self-confidence and independence as well as trying to reach their potential to be successful learners in a whole classroom setting.


Everyday Tips:

  • Get backpacks, clothing, shoes, and extra items ready the night before.

  • Check your child’s agenda daily. If it is blank, ask why?

  • Study a little each night for a test.

  • Model reading.

  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions.


Homework Tips:

  • Have a designated time and place for homework.

  • Give a little down time or snack before starting homework. (15-30 min.)

  • Take a break when needed then come back to homework.

  • When your child asks for help with homework, guide them, do not provide immediate answers.

  • If homework is taking a very long time each night, talk to the teacher.

My name is Tammy Dreihaup. I hold a teaching degree in Elementary Education from Alvernia University and Special Education Certification from Kutztown University. I am a graduate of OMPH School, a parent of an OMPH graduate, a lifelong member of OMPH Parish and a volunteer at the OMPH Community Food Bank. For over 20 years, I have taught at OMPH School in various roles. While I have enjoyed them all, my true passion is Instructional Support. The thing I love most about teaching is that every day is different and I have the privilege of working with students from all grade levels.
