Nesra Wale, a primary school teacher in Hamilton, talks about why she wears a hijab and how the kids in her class react to it. 

“As a teacher I don’t sit in my classroom and lecture my kids about who I am. It’s one of the first things we talk about when we meet them, I tell them my name and my age, and I also tell them I wear a hijab and it’s for my religion. And the kids grasp that concept so fast because kids are understanding.”

This is the second episode in the series My Hijab and Me.
