WHY DO YOU ENJOY WORKING WITH INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS?

When working with international students, I am an observer of positive changes in their lives.  In a new environment, they start to think critically, add more creativity in their studying process, they bring to the classroom their culture and simultaneously get adapted to American lifestyles.  The campus involvement gives international students a chance to meet new friends.  Once they feel comfortable in new country, I feel myself happy too.
