  • Look! She hasent flinched an eyelash!!! She can't see you!! Helen!!!!!
  • Hi! I'm Annie Sullivan!
  • On June 27th 1880, a girl named Helen Keller was born.Several months later Helen was diagnosed with a congestion of the stomach and brain, but turned out much worse. A doctor came to check Helen and hows she is doing with her congestion. The doctor said she would be fine.. but soon after he had already left Kate Keller noticed that Helen was not reacting to any of the motions and sounds Kate was making. When Kate told captain Keller what was happening, they both concluded that Helen became blind and deaf.
  • Six years Later Helen is struggling with being blind and deaf. Helen's brother James suggested that they should put Helen in an asylum, but Kate and Captain Keller refused. After all the commotion that Helen has caused, Kate and Captain Keller decide to hire a governess for Helen named Annie Sullivan. Annie had grown up partially blind, and lived in an asylum with her brother Jimmie. Jimmie later died and ever since Annie has awaited for a resurrection. When the Keller's hired Annie she was working at the Perkins institute, a school for the blind and deaf. Here she is now, waiting to see what she can do fer Helen.
  • As soon as Annie settled in she wanted to begin teaching Helen. At first Annie spelled the word doll into Helen hand in sign language and Helen spelled back, Annie thought Helen had potential to really learn something. Annie got a doll out of her suitcase, let Helen feel it and only if she spelled it she would get the doll. Annie did the same thing with cake, Helen would only get to eat the cake if she spelled cake.Helen spelled doll into Annie's hands and Annie gave Helen the doll... but Helen smacked Annie across the face with it, locked Annie in her room and left with the key. Pretty soon everyone knew what was happening, and so everyone was looking for the key to unlock Annie's bedroom door. Moments later no one could find the key, So Captain Keller just went to Annie's window and carried her down from the window on a ladder. When everyone went inside except for Annie, Helen thought she was alone. Helen then took the key out of her mouth and put t in the pump box. Annie then knew Helen didn't like her in the house. Annie also knew she wasn't giving up that easily.
  • Wah-Wah
  • After the struggling days with Helen Annie finally thought its was time for a change. So Annie asked Kate and Captain Keller if it was okay for her to take complete charge of Helen, and live in the garden house so that when teaching Helen, Helen isn't distracted . They gave her the approval on two conditions. One ,Helen would learn to tolerate Annie ,and two, she had two weeks to teach Helen. Annie took that deal and the two weeks to teach Helen what she could in the time frame that she had. When Annie got to the garden house it was night so she decided to go to bed. But later that night she woke up because she had a nightmare, she decided to go to Helen but when she touched her Helen woke up startled. Annie said " I will touch you." She thinks about her statement for a minute then she has an idea. She quickly gets Percy up and starts spelling into his hands to make Helen jealous. Sure enough it worked! Helen came to investigate what they were doing and quickly barged in and started doing it too. Annie touched Helen without Helen giving a fuss witch means she was on the right trail, and so the learning begins.
  • The two weeks are finally up and Annie has only taught Helen obedience and Annie wanted more than that. Annie wanted Helen to connect things with words, but Annie couldn't accomplish that in the time frame she was given. When Helen was back with her parents she and they were over joyed. Especially Kate. They had a dinner ready for Helen with all her favorite foods, but something happened. Helen was acting up at the dinner table, and Annie knew what was going on. Helen was testing her parents by throwing her napkin down on the floor, and it was working. Annie told Kate and Captain Keller what Helen was doing and they would be fine tolerating it... but Annie wouldn't. Helen then knocked over the water pitcher and Annie went crazy so she took Helen out side to the pump to refill it.
  • When Annie and Helen got outside Annie put Helen's hand under the water pump to feel the water and to fill the pitcher. She made Helen's hand crank the pump, while Helen was still asking for her mom. Annie ignored the sign and said " she's not here!" Annie spelled water into Helen's hand and waited. Helen then said "Wah. Wah." Annie is over joyed! Helen then spells back water into Annie's hands. Annie is overwhelmed with happiness and says "Yes!" Pretty soon Helen is running all across the lawn hitting things and holding her palm open for Annie so she can spell its word into her hand. The miracle finally happened! This is what Annie wanted all along. Annie called Kate and Captain Keller, and told them the news, As well as translating who they were in sign language to Helen. Helen then touches Annie, Annie spells teacher. Helen spells back and hugs Annie. Annie says " I love Helen. Forever and ever." At that moment in Annie's life she had her resurrection and met her goal with Helen. After that they both go inside to finish dinner. Annie Sullivan is the miracle worker who changed Helen Keller's life.
