how do you know when to use 것 -이, -을, -는?

것 here is a noun, and means "thing."

이/가 is a subject marker, 을/를 is an object marker, and 은/는 is a topic marker

So, because the teacher is doing the action, we put the subject marker on teacher. Since the 것 is receiving the action, we put the object marker on it.

The literal translation is:

Teachers like the thing that teaches.

But, in English, this "something that" grammar can be converted into an "-ing" noun. For instance:

가르치는 것, the thing that teaches OR teaching

수영하는 것, the thing that swims OR swimming

적는 것, the thing that writes OR writing
