Hittygirls June Travel Hitty
Hitty Annie Sullivan
|Our theme for the June Travel Hitty is "Traveling Teacher". Our Hitty is named after a couragous teacher, Annie Sullivan. Annie Sullivan, best known as the teacher of Helen Keller, lived from April 14, 1866 to October 20, 1936. She was the only daughter of Irish immigrant farmers Thomas Sullivan and Alice Cloesy, and had a brother, Jimmie, who was crippled. Annie Sullivan's parents died, and she was sent to an orphanage. She lost her eyesight at an early age, but it was restored (although not perfectly) through a series of operations. She graduated as class valedictorian in 1886 from the Perkins Institute for the Blind. Ms Sullivan began teaching blind and deaf Helen Keller when Helen was seven years old. She dedicated her life to helping Helen become all she could be, despite her handicaps.|
