Here’s to Anne Sullivan Macy. Anne was the tutor of Helen Keller. Helen was unmanageable, full of anger because as a young child she realized that other people could speak and she couldn’t. Anne broke through her anger, built rapport and trust, taught her the meaning of words drawn on her hand, braille, how to read lips through touch, and ultimately to speak. Or in the words of Steve Jobs…

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.

But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire.

Here’s to Anne Sullivan Macy, who showed us how to be a true teacher.
