I think teaching newcomer students makes me a better teacher. For example, I can’t be talking the whole time. I have to listen, respond, and pay close attention to my students to make sure they are getting what they need to improve their English and understand the content. It makes me more patient and focused as a teacher. Also, the progress they make might seem small at the time, but when my students come up to me and we're having a full-on conversation in English because I’ve taught them for three years, it's an amazing and very powerful feeling.
