Staff Spotlight: Kacie Kuhlman

Sales Advisor/Admin
I went abroad with TEFL Heaven in 2019 and taught in Bangkok! I currently reside in the United States, and love encouraging others to go abroad and have the most amazing experience like I did!


What is your favorite travel memory?

My favorite travel memory is feeding the elephants in Chiang Mai. We were able to feed the elephants, wash them, and make them food! It was one of those moments where you reflect on how you got here, and how truly blessed you are! Being around those animals and feeding them was the most amazing memory.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

Absolutely! I have been able to chat and meet people from all walks of life and from all over the world! I feel like a more well-rounded individual, and have personally grown from the relationships and connections I have made. I always feel so blessed to be able to say that I have had conversations or shared stories with someone who lives halfway across the world from me!

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

The growth that happens after the course and during their time of being in the classroom! You are challenged not only by teaching and your students but by being in a new culture and environment. It is amazing to see the change within our students! One student was terrified about going abroad, but we made sure we were there every step and it was amazing to see her confidence soar!

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

Thailand without a doubt - I went through that program myself and I would do it 100X over. The country, the people, and the food are out of this world! We have so many alumni in Thailand and amazing connections with the schools! Even though every program has its unique characteristics, or Thailand program has been around the longest!

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

I think our company is unique because every single one of us on the team have gone through TEFL Heaven ourselves. We know first hand what our program are like and how they can transform your life!

I have been beyond proud of our team especially the last few months because we have just continued to grow and always overcome any hurdle that comes our way!

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

Teamwork and communication! Our team is constantly communicating and making it a wonderful place to work in. Even though we are remote and all of us live in different countries at the moment, we are always there for each other. But not only that, we care deeply about our candidates and future teachers because we have all gone through this exact program ourself!
