Logan Krogull

Logan wants every child to be addicted to music.

“I want to be an elementary music teacher; that’s when you get kids hooked on music,” he says.

Logan is blending his love for music with his passion for education. During his sophomore year he began shadowing an elementary classroom, preparing for his student-teaching position during his fourth year.  He credits the North Central College faculty with guiding him through his training.

“They’re always around to help,” he says. “I’ve formed some great relationships with my professors.”

Although he loves music, Logan’s aspirations extend beyond teaching notes.

“I want to be an inspiration to children. I want to help mold them into the person they’re meant to be.”
