Who is Christopher Wiehl?
Christopher Wiehl is an up and coming School Psychologist from the Central New York area. Christopher has always been interested in what made people who they were and what made them unique. Christopher has always wanted to be in a field where he would be able to help others. He received his Bachelors of Science at the University at Buffalo in 2011 and then took some time off. During this time, he worked as a school substitute working with elementary school students. While working with one of the students, he noticed how far the child was falling behind and that the teachers were moving on without this student knowing anything. Chris realized then that he needed to find a way to help this student. He wanted to know why the student was struggling. Christopher asked what he could do and was directed to the field of School Psychology. He applied for the Masters program at SUNY Oswego and was accepted. Two years of schooling, training, and internships later, Christopher is ready to get to work!
