Mrs. Marla Norgard

I became a North Star many years ago when I entered North Elementary School as a kindergartner. I have many fond memories of my teachers, classmates, and the building through my sixth grade year at North. From the time I can remember, I have always wanted to be a teacher and I believe North School was a big influence on that desire. Whether my students aspire to become teachers, doctors, accountants, parents, or whatever they dream, my hope is that they develop a love of school and learning while at North.


I  am in my 25th year of teaching in District 47 and have taught Health, PE, Primary Thinking Skills (PTS), fourth grade and fifth grade. Although teaching Health, PE, and PTS was enjoyable and allowed me to work part-time and be at home with my own children while they were little, my passion is in the classroom teaching fourth graders! I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
