Helen's Teacher

By Jody Williams
1     What makes a teacher special? She may be funny. She may be smart. She may do fun activities. She may care about her students. She may show interest in what her students say. She may want her students to be the best people they can be. Anne Sullivan was a special teacher.
 
2     On April 14, 1866, Anne Sullivan was born. She was born in Massachusetts. Her parents were from Ireland. They were farmers. They did not have much money. Anne was sick when she was five years old. She lost her sight. Anne's mother died when she was eight. Her father could not take care of her or her brother. He took them to an orphanage.
