From my first grade through 3rd grade, I always had HARD TIME to memorizing the alphabet order A,B,C to Z by using my voice and sound. I was no good to remember A to Z until I was in 4th grade, I finally got a children book something about Helen Keller's life story from SJI's small library in the Middle School because we, the SJI dorm students did watched one movie called "Miracle Worker" with closed captioned in a theatre on one of every Sundays after supper... I found that children book about Helen Keller from SJI's library that has picture of fingerspelled alphabet order from A to Z in the back of Helen Keller's Lifestory book.
So I was so happy to be allowed to bring that book to my dorm bedroom and I did enjoyed study fingerspelled A,B,C to Z. Fingerspelled A to Z did really helped me to remember A to Z so much far better than using my voice and sound!
So one of the 6th grade dorm girl who was an Upper School (6th to 8th grades) Speech Teacher's favorite pet did told one of the nuns to follow her to go my bedroom. I was caught studying with my fingerspelling from both of them. I didn't know that they were watching me!!!
So that Speech Teacher Nun did grabbed the book and pulled my arm out of my bed!!! She squeezed my arm so hard to pull me to go the girls dorm bathroom. She did turned the hot water on to fill up the sink. That cruel SJI Speech Teacher nun scolded at me that I did wasted my mother and father's alot of money to sent me to SJI. She had a nerve to force my hands in the hot water!!! I did screamed so painfully and she got the chance to put the soap in screaming mouth.
That Speech Teacher nun forced me to bite a soap by closing my screaming mouth and forced me by her hands to make me swallow the horrible taste of soap! I got so sick of tasting that soap! I cried so hard because my hands were so hurt from the hot water!
I was SO sick with the taste of soap and the pain from both hands for all night! I already know the A to Z and got myself passed the written test right away after one time studying the A,B,C to Z fingerspelled from Helen Keller's book! I was glad that Helen Keller's book that helped me to remember A to Z so very well.
I don't trust some of the dorm students! I do not trust some of day students who have their mothers who worked at SJI to serve lunch for us the students because of "favorism"!
