Instructional Support

Contact Mrs. Dreihaup – tdreihaup@omph.org

My name is Tammy Dreihaup.  I am a graduate of OMPH School and an active member of the parish.  I hold a degree in Elementary Education from Alvernia University as well as certification for working with students in instructional support programs. 
 Mrs. Dreihop - Library
The 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 an as need 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.
