(qepHom 2016, 11/07/2016):   The regular word for teacher is {ghojmoHwI'}.  A teacher held in high esteem, of higher rank than other teachers in the same institution, could be {ghojmoHwI' quv} or {ghojmoHwI' Han} (v. "be learned, scholarly, erudite").  Probably the highest standing of all is a {'a'ghen}, which can be translated as "master teacher" or "professor".
