Captain Keller, James Keller and Kate Keller were all one family. When they got baby Helen, they were very excited. But they weren't very excited to find their Helen was deaf-blind! Kate was the one to discover this, and she wasn't to happy about it.
Helen grew undisciplined and was pitied by her parents, so she did very bad things. It was almost like Helen owned her parents. Kate and Keller let Helen grow like this, and it got bad. She would break things, throw unnecessary tantrums, etc.
Annie Sullivan arrived at the scene, to help tame the beast we know as Helen. Annie would teach Helen things like language, discipline, manners, etc. You see, This is Annie's first time teaching, so Keller is having a bit of doubt that Annie could tame Helen.
Annie did have lots of troubles. While trying to teach Helen some finger language, she locked Annie inside her room, and hid the key. Keller gave Annie a ride down out through the window. They also had this huge WWE wrestling match in the dining room, where Helen learned how to eat with a spoon, Fold her napkin, and how to eat from her OWN plate.
After all this nonsense, The Keller's decide to let Helen and Annie stay in a small house on their lawn alone for two weeks, so Helen would learn more and would trust Annie more. The two weeks flew by, and Helen learned a lot. She learned manners, and other major stuff. The Keller's are more than satisfied on the way Helen came out, but Annie is not. Annie wanted to teach Helen language. But the Keller's demanded Helen back, and so they got her. Later at supper time, Helen forgot all her manners! She thought she could get away with it, since she was back in her old house. Threw her napkin, dropped her spoon, and soaked Annie with the pitcher. Annie was mad, and led Helen to the pump to refill it.
Once they got to the pump, Annie made Helen feel the water. But Helen said something she hadn't said in a long time. "Wah wah". (She meant water). Annie was super excited, and spelled something in her hands. Helen understood and replayed it. Annie was super excited now, that she had finally broken the wall and got to Helen. Annie took this opportunity to teach Helen words. Helen learned many words that day.
