Representative Jill Norgaard, House District 18
Prior serving in the Arizona legislature, Jill Norgaard has been vice president of a major aerospace/defense company and is a former small business owner. One of Representative Norgaard’s top priorities is to target resources for students needing additional support in areas such as math, reading, ELL, and dyslexia. As a member of the House Education Committee, Representative Norgaard has been willing to hear all sides of the issues and work towards solutions. Last session, she was a strong champion of the bill to shift from a one-size-fits-all approach to help students learn English, but ultimately this piece of legislation came up short. However, she is committed to working to pass a similar bill next session.
