According to court documents, Vera met the 13-year-old boy in one of her 8th grade classes. The two eventually established a sexual relationship that lasted for 9 months.

The relationship wasn’t exactly a secret. One student told ABC13 Houston that the signs were obvious.

Vera, who was described by students as the “cool teacher,” didn’t hide the relationship very well. “He like grabbed her butt and everybody saw it. And then they were talking about it,” said a student to ABC 13.

But wait — Vera also told police that the boy’s parents approved of their relationship…

According to Vera, she was introduced to the boy’s family as his girlfriend — and the family was cool with it.

And when Vera became pregnant with the boy’s child, she told police his parents were supportive.

Vera, who has a young daughter, got pregnant with the boy’s child in January. The following month, Child Protective Services visited her school to question Vera about her relationship with the boy. Vera told police she had an abortion after the CPS visit because she was scared of being caught.

Vera, who recently turned herself into police, was charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child. She was released after posting a $100,000 bond.

If convicted, Vera faces 25 years to life in prison. Vera’s employer, Aldine ISD released a statement about the situation: “Aldine ISD has been made aware that charges have been filed against a former Stovall Middle School teacher involved in inappropriate behavior with a male student. When the allegation was made in April, the teacher was immediately removed from the school and placed on administrative leave.”

CPS is now investigating Vera’s claims that the boy’s parents were supportive of the relationship.

As abuela puts it, “Si tienes tiempo para comer mierda con tus amigitos, tienes tiempo para misa!” Of course, you might already be at mass because abuelita forced you to “volunteer” as an altar server, usher or choir member.

Lose something? Have a test coming up? Feel bored? Light a vela.

“Hocus Pocus”? Apparently it’s written by, directed by and starring: ~*~ El Diablo ~*~

You had to learn prayers in both English and Spanish.

You earned extra points from your fam if your crush was Catholic, too.

Now you can focus on what he/she should really be judged on: appetite.

You knew better than to tell your fam “Happy Holidays.”

Forget political correctness; it’s “Feliz Navidad,” ?

“Felices Pascuas,” ? or a sopapo. ? Your choice.

The “que comistes?” phone calls from home got a little bit more stressful on Fridays during Lent…

You tried. That totally counts.

Your first communion was kiiind of a big deal.

Praying el rosario is a group affair, especially for viejitas.

Praying… or passively-aggressively pointing out Tío Pepe’s drinking problem? One will never know.

And even if you eventually found your own spiritual identity…

You know your family’s religious culture helped shape who you are.

You will never forget: Jesús está en todas partes.
