"I would be starting school in a week. I never looked forward more to anything in my life."
Jem was very excited to start the first grade because she loved to read.
"Miss Caroline caught me writing and told me to tell my father to stop teaching me. "Besides," she said. "We don't write in the first grade, we print. You won't learn to write until you're in the third grade."
On her first day she got in trouble with Miss Caroline, her teacher. After her first day she dreaded going to school again because Miss Caroline told her that Atticus couldn't teach her to read at home anymore. Also she was not permitted to write, she was only allowed to print.
