الجواب بعون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


If the school is an all-female school, a woman may work as a teacher or as an assistant to a female teacher.

And if it is a school where the there are male students who have hit the age of puberty or male students who are close to puberty, then a woman is not allowed to work as a teacher there.
