I dedicate the present exvoto to Saint John Bosco for allowing me to successfully combine my two jobs. In the morning, I’m a respectful teacher in a prestigious school, and at night, I participate in a famous drag queen show, and I very much enjoy those both jobs.

I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe with the present retablo for being able to become a teacher of indigenous languages. It fills me with pride that I teach kids the beauty of our native languages.

Young Anselmo Aguilar was tired of his teacher constantly flunking him in physics for no reason. One day he got so angry, he threw the teacher down the stairs of the school. He gives thanks to Saint Francis of Paula for he was only kicked out of school and did not go to jail. He also did community service and paid medical expenses.

There were some strange plants growing in my flower pots. They looked nice, so I let them grow. Then I noticed that the plants were eating insect. That was intriguing. But then they tried to catch my cats. I prayed the Virgin of the Rosary to protect my cats. I was going to throw these plants away, but my neighbor, a teacher, offered me good money for them. He wanted to take them to the school because they were rare specimens.

I’m a high preparatory school math teacher, and I had a student who was flirting with me so that I would give her good grades because she was a bad student. I thank Saint Thomas Aquinas for the principal gave me another class because the girl began to wear daring clothes and harass me which could bring me professional problems and with my wife as well.

When I saw this scene on my cel phone and saw how they apprehended our teacher and going to hurt her, I got very angry. I entrusted her to the Virgin of the Solitude, the patroness of Oaxaca, and asked to protect her in their fight for the decent education for Mexico. We thank for she’s free now, because 6 persons were dead, 21 detained, 94 injured and many arrested. Let them know that they aren’t alone. Pupils and parents, we support the teachers.

My wife was a primary school teacher. She was teaching in second grade for many years but then she was moved to teach in third grade. She felt so distressed she began to give lessons in her sleep. And I couldn’t sleep listening about the monocotyledons and the dicotyledons. I couldn’t work either because of my lack of sleep. Then I implored the Virgin of Zapopan, and thanks to her my wife relaxed in few days. She doesn’t teach in her sleep anymore, and I can finally sleep peacefully.
