Assunto:  Which teacher is me ?
 
Mensagem:  PPaulo is right.

WHICH TEACHER /           IS /                  ME?  - incorrect
 
the correct form(ula) for this kind of question is
"WH question word /  helping verb / subject pronoun ?"

me = object pronoun

"Which teacher am I?" , sounds strange. 

Like PPaulo wrote:

What kind of teacher          /  am     /         I ?

He followed the form correctly.

wh question word        / helping verb / subject pronoun
 
(if I leave my students struggling and don´t help at all.)

Which one of your teachers do you like the best?

now a reduction:
Which ( one of your ) teachers do you  like the best?

Which teacher do you like the best?

Reductions like the one above are very frequent in spoken English.
