Kayla Hedin

Kayla grew up in Lansing, Michigan, and graduated from Spring Arbor University with a degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in reading and teaching English as a second language. Although Kayla has wanted to be a teacher for almost as long as she can remember, teaching outside the U.S. was not always on her radar.
Her interest in teaching abroad was sparked in high school and was quickly ignited after spending the summer of 2015 in Japan helping teach English at a kindergarten. The following year, she became friends with a fellow Spring Arbor student who had family roots in Burundi. After talking with this friend and her family about Burundi and the team in Kibuye, Burundi seemed to be written on her heart. Kayla joined the team in Kibuye in April of 2018 to teach at Kibuye Hope Academy for a two-year term.
