Would it be possible to write: -Opettaja on myöhää-??

No. In Finnish to be late (not on time) = olla myöhässä. You can say "myöhään" but not in this context. "Opettaja on koulussa myöhään" would mean that the teacher stays late, not that he/she arrives late.

"Teacher is late" was marked incorrect. How would this be translated into Finnish?
