She had some challenges with Helen Keller’s family. Because her concerns about the family was going to interfere in Anne Sullivan’s attempts to create structure causing them to move into a separate house.Another challenge was Helen Keller’s behavior problems which soon got solved.Relationship with other characters She had a great relationship with Helen Keller which was amazing because if she didn’t that would have bad because Anne Sullivan was Helen Keller’s teacher.She had a rocky relationship with Helen Keller’s family at first.But over time they all grew closer.Reasons why she is important The 1st reason is that Anne Sullivan is brave.Because she had nine eye operations.She is half blind and she took care of her sickly, little brother,Jimmie.The 2nd reason is that Anne Sullivan is an amazing person.Because she taught Helen Keller,she is blind and deaf,eighteen nouns and three verbs and thousands of words.And when Helen spilled water on Anne Sullivan and she made her go outside and fill back up she spelt water with her hands.The 3rd reason is that Anne Sullivan was a smart person.Because she went to school at the age of 14 and was out of school at the of 20.And then she went straight to a job,to teach Helen Keller.The 4th reason was that Anne Sullivan was successful.Because she taught Helen Keller how to do spelling with her hands.And Because Helen Keller was blind and deaf.My opinion I really liked the book.It spoke to me and told me that almost all things are possible like how a blind and deaf child,Helen Keller,learned the american sign language alphabet.And not to judge people by their cover,but to get to know them better.I think that this book does give an accurate account of my subject.I believe my mom would enjoy reading this book.Because she an independent woman.Also because it shows strength and my mom is very strong physically and emotionally.
