Chilean President Meets with World’s Best Teacher

SANTIAGO – Chilean President Michelle Bachelet on Tuesday received Palestinian educator Hanan Al Hroub, winner of the 2016 Global Teacher Prize, to discuss the challenges of teaching children in high-risk zones.

Education Minister Adriana Delpiano joined Bachelet and the 43-year-old teacher for the meeting at La Moneda palace.

The Global Teacher Prize is awarded by the Varkey Foundation and sponsored by the vice president of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Al Hroub arrived in Chile last week, invited by the country’s large and influential Palestinian community to share her story and meet with educators and government officials.

On Monday, Al Hroub and the Fundacion Elige Educar announced the launch of a process for Chile to put forward a nominee for the Global Teacher Prize.

Born in a refugee camp in Bethlehem, Al Hroub decided to become a teacher after seeing her own young children traumatized by a shooting incident.

The most important thing is to make children feel safe and relaxed during class by using games and paying attention to individual needs, she said in an interview with EFE.

Al Hroub’s approach has led to a “decline in violent behavior in schools where this is usually a frequent occurrence,” according to the Global Teacher Prize Award Web site.
