Helen Keller

Helen Keller was born in the summer of 1880 in Alabama. She lived with her Mother, Kate Keller, her Father, Capitain Arthur Keller, and her brother. Annie Sullivan was Helen's teacher from when she was 6 years old and into her 40's.

This is one of the books I read to learn about Helen Keller' s life. I would recommend this book to people who want to read a long biography about Helen.

This video is of Annie showing Helen how to spell and feel at the same time. Helen first tried this with the word W-A-T-E-R.

Education: I went to many different schools including Perkins Institute For the Blind, Horace Mann School to learn to speak with a lady named Miss Sarah Fuller, Radcliffe College with hearing and seeing ladies, and even at my own house with Miss. Annie Sullivan.

One of the hardest times of my life was when I went to Radciffe College and had to remeber the lessons that Annie taught me with her fingers. All of the lessons were meant for seeing & hearing women, not for me. It was very hard because I knew that teacher Annie was very blind until she had surgery. Her eyes were still weak and they hurt her.

Some of the happiest times in my life were when I learned to spell into Annie's hand, when I learned to read braile books which opend up my life, when l Iearned to speak by feeling the vibrations, and when I graduated from a hearing & seeing college with hearing & seeeing girls.

One of the saddest times in my life was when I got a very high feaver at 19 months old. It was so bad my doctor couldn't discover what it was. It lasted a long long time. I couldn't blink when light was shining in my face nor did I look when my mother or father said, ''Helen." That feaver made me blind and deaf.

I want people to remember me for dedicating my life to kids who were blind or deaf. I also want people to remember me for never giving up and having great courage.

Helen learned to use sing-lanuage at the age of 12.
