Chief Academic Officer

Steve Haessler

I occupied the Endowed Chair in Economic Education at Marquette University High School from 1987 through 2007. I moved to Tucson AZ to work as a Senior Fellow for The Robert and Marie Hansen Foundation, specializing in Catholic education issues and curriculum development and innovation. I authored “Apostles and Markets,” a set of lessons combining Catholic social doctrine and economics. I spent a year teaching upper level International Baccalaureate economics in Milan, Italy. In 2009, I began teaching economics and statistics online for the Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy. I now serve as JVLA’s Chief Academic Officer, and enjoy family, practicing the faith, and Japanese martial arts.
