Name: Mayra Navarro ID: 001023540
My name is Mayra Navarro and I am a freshman. I am majoring in Mathematics Education. I have always wanted to be a teacher ever since I could remember. However, I did not know what grade or subject I would've liked to teach. Then, when I was a junior, I had an amazing Pre-Calculus teacher. She inspired me to teach high school math. Since N.C. State has the best mathematics education program in the state, it was an easy choice to come here.
Since I am a first semester freshman, I still have not had the amazing break experience that many talk about. My favorite vacation was when in the summer between my junior and senior year. That was the year I went to Mexico for the first time in my life. It was an amazing experience. I saw many local historical sites that my parents had been telling me about for years. I also ate much of the local cuisine, which is even better than what my mom makes! I met much of my family that I had only talked to on the phone previously. I keep them in my heart always and try to contact them as much I can (which is easier to do now, thanks to Facebook!). I cannot wait to go back to Mexico again and experience more of it's culture.
