It is hard. It already is when it comes to the first language, but it's even tougher when it comes to a foreign language that follows its own rules. But then again, the grammar you teach in middle school is supposed to prepare you for high school when you deal with more difficult topics such as culture and literature and you have to speak the language well enough by then for it not to be an obstacle anymore. I mean, let's say you're supposed to write an essay on the American Dream. How to do it if you don't know about punctuation?
@mrlemonade: You wrote before that you consider the job of a teacher as possible option for you. Being scared of students' questions is not the best qualification for that job though
