Attempt in 120‒150 words a character sketch of Miss Sullivan.
Miss Sullivan was the teacher and constant companion of Helen. On 3 March 1887, Miss Sullivan arrived at the house of the Kellers. From that day on, Helen’s life took a completely different turn, from darkness to light and from isolation to friendship. Miss Sullivan was an extremely patient and considerate teacher who never failed to understand Helen’s frustration and discontentment. She methodically taught Helen to communicate using her fingers and assisted her in her education through all the institutions that Helen attended.
Miss Sullivan’s method of teaching was very effective. She illustrated everything she taught, using a poem or a story. Besides, she used to take Helen out-of-doors and teach her in the lap of nature. This way, she not only helped Helen learn lessons but also developed the bond between Helen and the world she was deprived of. Helen dedicates her success in articulating speech sounds to Miss Sullivan’s “genius, untiring perseverance and devotion”.
