In that interface, there is no way to specifically state that those who are students should see one page, while teachers should see another. Everyone sees the same page on login. How can you improve the experience when you only have one page to work with? By making that a very hard-working page, and making use of Joomla's ACL. Users to your site are assigned one or several user groups. Make sure one of them is the registered user group, so that all users who are logged in can see some content in common.
Public users, which are users not logged into the site, will not be able to see the content for Registered users. See earlier ACL articles to learn about how to configure this. Create a category for your login landing page, perhaps with a name like Login Landing Page. Set the access level on the category to Registered. Student and Teacher user groups should be part of the Registered access level.
Create an article within the category. The article should contain a module position for each access level. Make a link to the menu in the Menu Manager, choosing Single Article as your type and linking to your login landing page article.
Set the menu item's access level to Registered as well. If you don't want a link to the login page showing up in your navigation, you can always use the hidden menu technique to hide the link. For each module, assign it an appropriate access level and module position.

For example, make a module for the student access level with a position of student, one for the teacher access level with a position of teacher, and one for the registered access level with a position of registered. When someone then logs into the site, they will see the article, because they are part of the Registered access level. The modules they see will be determined by the access level of the module. In this case, students may see only the student module, teachers see the teachers and student modules, and administrators may see all three modules.
When you log into your Joomla website, the login module converts to a logout button. That's great if the module is displayed on each page of the site, but frequently, the module may only be displayed on one page or a handful of pages. This means a user will need to go back to that page to log out of the site. Likewise, if there's a login link on the site, the user must return to the login page which might say "login" in the navigation, even when they want to log out.
With ACL, you can have both of these, and you should put them in place for better user experience. If you'd like to have a "logout" button appear on each page of your website when a user is logged in, but you would not like to display a login box on every page of the site, here's how you can make this happen.
Create a second login module. Assign the access level to Registered, and have it appear on each page of the site.
This second login module will only appear when someone is already logged into the site. And when they're already logged in, the module displays as a logout button.

If you'd like a "logout" link to appear in your navigation, but have it only appear when someone is logged into the site, here's the way to make that happen. Create a menu item of the type of login. The menu item title can be Logout. Set the access level for this link to Registered. Now this menu item will only appear when someone is logged into the site. When they click on the Logout link, they will get a page with a logout button on it they can click.
This is an extra click relative to the module technique described above, but it may be more intuitive for some users, or it may work better with some site designs. You'll just have to test and see what works best for you!

The Login Module The login module is available on the home page of a Joomla 2. Look at the configuration options on the right side of the screen: Under the Login Redirection Page option above, this is where you set which page the login box should send you when you log into the site.

The Login Menu Link You can also create a menu link to a page which contains a login form. Look at the right side of the configuration screen, and you will see this: This login configuration screen does not redirect the user to a page by default.
