I am eleven years old, and I am invisible.I am sitting at my desk, in my classroom, on a perfect autumn afternoon - Friday, October 19, 1962
My desk is in the farthest row, next to the windows
I squint into the sunshine and watch a brilliant gold leaf fall from a spindly old tree by the sidewalk, and then I open Makers of America to page forty-seven because it's social studies time
I love social studies, love everything about it, and most of all I love to read aloud.Mrs
Rodriguez, my teacher, has skipped me twice this week - twice! - when we read out loud during social studies, going down each row, desk after desk
I am determined not to let that happen again.Mrs
Rodriguez wears square shoes with thick soles, and glasses on a beaded string around her neck
After conferences last week, I heard Mom describe her to Daddy as thick-waisted
Her fingers are the strong, blunt kind that put me in mind of my grandmother, Miss Mattie, who runs a store in Mississippi and is always hauling around boxes of boots or barrels of pickles
Miss Mattie's fingernails are cut straight across, but Mrs
Rodriguez has short, pointed nails that look like little triangles
I thought she liked me
When we practiced duck-and-cover under our desks the first week of school, my headband popped off my head and I didn't even try to retrieve it - I just kept my head down and let my hair fall all over my face
Mrs. Rodriguez complimented me right in front of everyone and told me I was a perfect turtle
