A teacher is wrong (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

amiss

Here is my best explanation:

'is wrong' is the definition.

('amiss' can be a synonym of 'wrong')

'a teacher' is the subsidiary indication.

'teacher' becomes 'miss' (I've seen this in other clues**).

'a'+'miss'='amiss'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for amiss that I've seen before include "Badly - wrong", "inappropriately", "Not functioning properly", "Wrong; inaccurate", "error", "Unsuitable", "Faulty", "Mistaken", "Wrongly" and "wrongly".)
