Information

A Palestinian teacher has won a $1m (£707,000) global teaching prize. Hanan Al Hroub grew up in a Palestinian refugee camp and now is a teacher of refugees herself.

She specialises in supporting children who have been traumatised by violence.

Ms Al Hroub told the audience that "teachers could change the world".

Growing up in a refugee camp near Bethlehem, Ms Al Hroub now works with refugee pupils, with an approach using play that is aimed at resolving violence and tension.

"I am proud to be a Palestinian female teacher standing on this stage," she said after receiving the award.

She says she will spend the prize money on supporting her students.
