    Default to understand or to understanding, thanks teachers!

    Dear teachers,

    Miss Sullivan was important to Helen because she had changed Helenís life from darkness (to understand or to understanding???) that everything had a name until she longed to learn to speak.

    Please advise, thanks soooooo much, teachers.
