June 27, 1880 inTuscumbia in a village in northwestern Alabama Helen Keler was born. Helen was a bright child and leared afew words, and toke her first steps by her second brithday. When Helen was two years old she became very ill. Soon she got better but her parents noticed something was wrong. Helen never closed her eyes even when her mother bathed Helen and when someone called her name she didn't answer, thats when they realised Helen was loseing her ablaty to see and hear. Helen said "When I awoke and found that all was dark and still, I suppose I thought it was night, and I must have wonderded why day was so long coming. However ,I got used to the silents and darkness that surronded me, and forgot it had ever been day." Soon Helen's father took her to see a docter, he said Helen would never she again. But told hele's father to she Alexander Graham Bell. He told him to contact the Perkins Instition for the blind in Bosten. They conntacted the school for the blind in Bosten.The Kellers receved a letter the from the school that said ,they found a teacher for Helen.

Helen is very smart. The reason I say is is thought out her life she did not want to stop learning. For example when she was little she learned the alfebet in one day. Hard-working. I think this is she wanted to be able to speak when she couldn't see the person's mouth moving or hear what eneyone is saying. Last, fisty. I think she is fisety because, whenshe was little her tantrums were freecent.
