Miss Caroline, my teacher, was no more than twenty-one. She had bright auburn hair, pink cheeks, and wore crimson fingernail polish. She also wore high-heeled pumps and a red and white striped dress. She looked and smelled like a peppermint drop.
So? Here you know what, I'll give you some money so you can go buy something to eat..
You can't do that- he doesn't have the money to pay you back, he is a Cunningham after all.
She introduced herself as Miss Caroline and wrote her name on the board for all of us to see.
He is a Cunningham, which means he is very poor and his family barely gets by. So he can not borrow your money as he wont be able to pay it back.
Miss Caroline goes around the room and sees that everyone except Walter Cunningham has a lunch. She asks him why and she doesn't understand.
Scout tries to help her understand but she just isn't getting that his family is poor.
Scout tries to help her understand that the Cunninghams are a very poor family which barely survive and barely are able to eat lunch, ever, and that's why he doesn't have one.
