When I was in third grade, Mrs. Nagata was my teacher. She thought I had a talent, so she showed her father, an Art teacher, my sketches and drawings. He told her I absolutely had a talent and I should own it. She then told my parents that I was artistic and that they should encorage me paint, draw, sketch, etc. Until she pulled my parents aside, I never knew what I did was different - neither did my parents. I say if it was not for Mrs. Nagata I would not be doing what I do today. Thanks Mrs. N!
