She is a fresh instructor in her twenties with pink cheeks and red nails who "looks and smells like a peppermint drop." She is from Winston County, which is located in north Alabama. She is unfamiliar with the customs of the inhabitants of Maycomb County. Explain Jem and Scout's understanding of Miss Caroline's "Dewey Decimal teaching system."
Scout explains that Miss Caroline uses the Dewey Decimal System to classify books. This would place her at least slightly below average in intelligence. Her appearance also seems to corroborate this assumption: she is young, pretty, and smells like a peppermint drop. Despite these indications, Jem believes that she is intelligent because she teaches school. He asks Miss Caroline if there are any more branches to the decimal system and she says no. Then he asks if she knows anyone else in Maycomb County and she says no again. Jem concludes that since Miss Caroline doesn't know anyone else in Maycomb County and doesn't seem to have any other friends, she must be lonely and needs some friends her own age. So he tells Scout to invite her to go with them to the river tomorrow after school.
