If you say "Mi profesor viejo," your indicating your teacher old age-wise. I was wondering how you indicate that your talking about a past teacher.

Probably the literal translation is not the usual way.
If you were referring to the previous, or immediately "past" teacher, I would say, "mi profesor anterior."
