A former refugee who specializes in teaching kids non-violence has been named Global Teacher of the Year.

The recipient of the prestigious award, Hanan Al-Hroub, also received one million dollars which she plans to put forth as scholarship money for outstanding students to pursue higher education.

Al-Hroub grew up in a refugee camp and, as an adult, saw her own children changed by the violence on the West Bank. She was inspired to go to college and obtain a degree in Elementary Education when she noticed how playing games with her kids – and neighborhood children – helped them adjust to life’s challenges

Shortly after graduating, she opened her own primary school. There, she uses playful academic lessons to teach kids to practice non-violence while building strong, trusting and respectful relationships.

Reportedly, her unique approach has led to a decline in violence among the students, which was why she was picked as one of the top candidates to receive the Global Teacher of the Year Award.

Over 8,000 teachers across the globe were nominated to receive the honor which is akin to a “Nobel Peace Prize for educators.”

This former refugee, who now teaches kids how to practice non-violence, was honored with an award akin to a “Nobel Peace Prize for educators.” she has recently proved to be a substance to reckon with.
