In English-speaking countries, K-12 teachers are not usually addressed as "teacher." Instead, a title of respect, followed by the person's first or last name, is used. For example, a teacher whose name was Mary Lopez might be addressed as "Miss Lopez" (if she were unmarried), "Mrs. Lopez" (if she were married), or even "Miss Mary."
