Suzanne Igarteburu, Development Associate, graduated with a BA from Northeastern University as the valedictorian of the English department. After teaching in Spain, she explored storytelling’s transformative power through her program work at Raising A Reader MA, an early literacy non-profit. During this time, Suzanne built an
arts integrated curriculum for immigrant parents of young children. Alongside participants, Suzanne practiced dialogic reading, which is an interactive form of storytelling that encourages families to celebrate their heritage language and engage their children in imaginative conversation.
