ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I was born in Nogales, Arizona, and I was raised by Anita and Jack Drum in Magdalena Sonora. At six, I was taken to Nogales, where I started first grade. The principal called my father and asked him if he knew I could not speak English. My father came to the school immediately. When he arrived, he walked into the office and asked me what I was up to. The principal asked if he noticed that he did not speak English to me. My father said, “As a matter of fact, I have never spoken in English to my son.”
The principal advised that I attend school in Mexico, but my father insisted that I attend in Arizona. My second year of first grade was with a woman and her two Navaho foster children. I was seven; they were eight and nine years old. First, I learned to defend myself, and a great need came over me—to learn English. The end of that year came, and Mrs. McDonald went to get my graduation diploma. I went to the closet one more time; I called the older boy after I had made a wall with paper boxes. When the younger boy broke through the boxes, I got through with him. I then walked out to see Mrs. McDonald. She looked at me, smiled, then said, “They deserved that.” She handed me my diploma and said, “You may go if you like.” I ran like the wind and never looked back until I reached my driveway. Whew! They did not follow me!
