@拳拳恳 Both 教师 and 老师 mean teacher, but when you call someone that is a teacher, you would not say 教师, but 老师. For example, you are a student, and you greet teacher Li in the morning. You would say 李老师,早上好. It's wrong to say 李教师,早上好.

comment Is any simplified character also a traditional character?
@拳拳恳 The simplification does both good and bad to the language. Some traditional characters were merged into one character, and thus this simplified character has more meanings than it had before. In few cases, this multi-meaning character would make a sentence ambiguious(especially when you read classic chinese works with simplified characters, so good classic chinese works are published nowadays with traditional characters), but the writer/speaker can avoid it by using another character with the similar meaning or insert more characters to express the meaning explicitly.

comment Is any simplified character also a traditional character?
I say it is wrong, because you should write chinese either in simplified version or traditional version. Theoretically, a sentence with both traditional and simplified characters could be understood,but this behavior is prohibited by law in the mainland, and in HongKong and Taiwan, people don't understand simplified characters, so it's not a good idea to write with mixed characters,either.
