Expert Answer:

Miss Sullivan:

Anne Sullivan is best known as Helen Keller’s teacher and companion who connected her with the outside world. Miss Sullivan was not only successful in bringing Helen out of darkness and uncertainty, but also was instrumental in making her think and thereby helping her make a connection between the abstract and the physical world.

Miss Sullivan and Helen Keller were together for forty-nine years. During this period, Miss Sullivan strived hard to mentor Helen in all possible ways.  Whether it was reading books indoors or exploring the world outside, Miss Sullivan was Helen’s constant companion.

Although Miss Sullivan followed a strict schedule while teaching Helen, she carefully employed ideas that Helen would willingly accept while learning new things. She spelled each word on Helen’s palm and made her feel everything that Helen wanted to explore and know about. Miss. Sullivan even helped Helen in getting her degree from Radcliffe College despite great difficulties.

Miss. Sullivan’s lifelong companionship with Helen Keller is indeed awe-inspiring and helps people understand how a teacher through her perseverance and devotion can miraculously change a student’s life.

Dr. Alexander Graham Bell

Dr. Alexander Graham Bell played a significant role in the life of Helen Keller. So profound was his influence on Helen that she dedicated her autobiography “The Story of My Life” to him. Dr .Bell was consulted by the Kellers in order to seek help for Helen’s education. Helen took to him immediately and was moved by his tenderness and sympathy. The meeting with Dr. Bell instilled hope into her and allayed her fears of being isolated.

He had a kind personality which is understood in the way in which he used to engage Helen by explaining amusing things to her in a way nobody could. According to Helen, he was proficient in many fields of science and had the ability to turn any drab, abstruse subject interesting. He saw the best in people and believed that anybody could be an inventor had he or she had enough time. Contrasting with his image of a scientist, Dr. Bell was also an artistic and a humourous person. But the greatest quality that motivates the humanitarian in Dr. Bell is his love for children. He was devoted to the cause of deaf children and he wanted to make the world a better place for them.
