What would "some teacher" be in french if not -"un professeur"?
If it was "some teachers", It would have been ... something else?
No, you wouldn't use un in this context but certains if you mean to say some (specific) teachers.
Some teachers didn't show up. -- Certains enseignants ne sont pas venus.
Note, however, that this meaning of "some" is different from "several" or "a few".
Well, I would disagree, as "some" is regularly used in America as a slightly disparaging form of "a". As in: "Is Mary dating any one ? Yeah, she's going out with some teacher."
