Jesse Virlee - CTED Instructor

Jesse Virlee

  • As a CTED instructor I teach Excel. From Beginner to Advanced and everything in between. I have taught onsite at many local businesses, and customized the training to their needs. Excel is best learned through examples, and questions and answers. I have also developed a seminar through NWTC for Pivot Tables, Charts and Formulas. After teaching many classes these were the areas people wanted to focus the most on.
  • For my day job I am a Lead Engineer at Schneider National where I work in Excel a large majority of my work day.
  • Been teaching through NWTC since 2010, starting in the Business Information and Technology area teaching Supply Chain, Lean Operations Management and Negotiation classes.
  • I was a WIAA official for 13 years for Volleyball, Basketball and Baseball. Most of my experience was working with the student athletes as much as a coach/mentor as an official. Which I believe helped prepare me for teaching.
  • I have many diverse hobbies from Hunting, Fishing, Biking, Running to just about any kind of sport. I was a Big Brother for 5 years as well. I believe this well rounded background helps me identify with most people and their needs.
  • I am a father of 2 beautiful girls, ages 6 and 9 (as of 2015), been married since 1997 to my high school sweetheart, and have worked at Schneider National since 1996. I grew up in Sturgeon Bay, graduated from UW-Stevens Point and have firm roots established in Wisconsin.
