Helen Keller was a normal, joyful child at first with her sight and hearing. She was born June 27, 1880 in Tuscumbia, AL. When Helen was 18 month old she got sick with a fever that destroyed her sight and hearing. Later Helen became frustrated and wild because she couldn’t communicate with the world. She would go on rampages were she would be very mad and destructive. She would break many things in anger. When she was happy she would laugh uncontrollablyHelen got a teacher that was a miracle worker, her name was Ann Sullivan. Ann taught Helen how to spell with her fingers and many other things. The way she taught it to her is very creative and effective. Ann took Helen over to a water pump, put her hands under the running water and then began to spell water with her fingers in Helens hands. Helen then would spell the word back to Ann when she felt the water. Helen learned more than thirty words that day. Helen was a very smart woman. She learned how to speak by putting her fingers in someone’s mouth and repeating what they said. She went to college at Radcliff. By this time Helen had mastered touch lip reading, braille, speech, typing, and finger-spelling. Helen Keller wrote her first book at the age of twenty two years old. The book was an autobiography called “The story of my Life.” She wrote many books in her lifetime. I think it’s pretty amazing that she wrote books even though she was deaf and blind. Helen dies June 1, 1968 Easton, CT. She was 88 years old when she died. Helen stood as a powerful example that nothing is impossible with hard work. Helen showed that hard work really does pay off in the end.
