Palestinian Teacher Among World’s Top 10

Hanan Al Hroub - Global Teacher Prize 2016 - Top 10 Finalist.

A Palestinian teacher from the occupied West Bank has been chosen as a top ten finalist in an international teaching competition, it was announced today.

Hanan Al-Hroub, from Dheisheh refugee camp south of Bethlehem, was chosen as one of the finalists in the Valley Park Foundation’s Global Teacher’s Prize for 2016. Some 8,000 entries jostled for the top spots, with British Professor Stephen Hawking announcing the names of those who attained the places.

Al-Hroub is being honoured for her teaching method, which focuses on non-violence by “teaching through playing” and includes counselling for students struggling with behavioural problems due to the violence they are subjected to by the Israeli occupation.

She was nominated for the award, along with 11 other Palestinian teachers, by the Ministry of Education.
