Yes. Don't use the password as a differentiator. More advanced password systems don't transmit the password itself over the wire. As
both "student" and the teachers name are not exactly secret, I'll assume security is not an objective :-]

I suggest something like

username "student-$teachername" ie student-jmackie
password "internet" or some such. You could even make the password the teachername as you had before, or a password assigned to each
teachers class. Depends on your balance of security vs administration.
