About Me

Associate Professor Tammi Ohmstede teaches School Psychology Interventions Practicum, Child and Adolescent Development and Intervention, Behavioral Problem Solving Assessment, Problem Solving Consultation, Infant Preschool Assessment, Pre-Internship Seminar, and supervises Internship.

“I enjoy watching students grow and develop skills over the three years they spend with us. It seems like such a short amount of time, but the amount of change that you see with them interpersonally as well as professionally is huge. I just love to watch that process.”

Ohmstede of Guide Rock, NE graduated from UNK with a bachelor’s degree in social work in 2001. She then earned her education specialist degree in school psychology from UNK. During her college experience, Ohmstede completed a practicum experience with the Munroe-Meyer Institute Behavioral Health Clinic in Hastings and worked at the I Believe in Me Ranch, a former residential facility in Kearney.

After graduation, she worked as an education consultant at the I Believe In Me Ranch for one year.

Ohmstede graduated from Oklahoma State University with her Ph.D. in December of 2008.

Before coming to UNK, Ohmstede worked with school-age children within the Recovery School District and with infants and toddlers at an Infant Mental Health Clinic through the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans.

She returned to UNK to teach in August 2008.

“Kearney became my home. I’m not from Kearney, but over the course of all of my education, Kearney became home to me and I wanted to move back and raise my kids here.”

Ohmstede specializes problem solving consultation in diverse settings, early childhood assessment and intervention, data-based decision making and behavioral parent training.

She is the faculty advisor for Graduate Association of School Psychologists at UNK.
