Note: “Una profesora importante” is also a correct translation.

The way Duolingo works in that if your typo is a true typo you do not get dinged for it. But if your typo happens to make another dictionary word, then the Duolingo computer sees what you typed as being a wrong word and you get dinged for typing a wrong word.

I see, thanks. I suppose there is some logic to that approach.

If I type in the male version correctly...no comment. If I type in the female version...I get the male version as another correct response. Come on duolingo..seriously?

bit harsh to count me wrong for adding an extra "s" to "profesor". Usually you get dinged for a typo!

I guess, but that particular typo is also a common misspelling of the word. Some people actually think that there are two S's in the Spanish word!

then i make another mistake for dropping the "t" from "importante" and get dinged for a typo. Go figure!

Teachers and professors are usually classified as two different roles, with teachers being at the pre-K through highschool levels and professors usually being at colleges, I think.
