RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teacher from the occupied West Bank has been chosen as a top ten finalist in an international teaching competition, it was announced this week.

Hanan al-Hroub, from Duheisha refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank, was chosen as one of the finalists in the Valley Park Foundation's Global Teacher's Prize for 2016 out of a pool of some 8,000 teachers who participated.

Al-Hroub is being honored for her teaching method, which focuses on non-violence by "teaching through playing" and interweaves counseling for students struggling with behavior problems due to the violence Palestinian children are subjected to through Israel's occupation. The Palestinian Minister of Education Sabri Saidam and an escorting delegation surprised al-Hroub with the news of her award this week during the school day in one of her classrooms.Saidam said al-Hroub's award is a victory for Palestine and Palestinian teachers.Al-Hroub was nominated for the award, along with 11 other Palestinian teachers, by the Palestinian Ministry of Education.

Well done, if ever anyone is teaching under adverse conditions, she is.
