Yes it is? Hi everybody! I'm a bit puzzled. In an English book I've found the following exchange: - Is that our new teacher? - Yes, it is. Her name is Mrs Roberts. My question is: is "it" correct? Shouldn't it be "she", as the teacher is a lady? Are both words acceptable? Thanks a lot for your help!

The pronoun you switch to is dictated by the question. Is that our new teacher? Yes it is. Is she our new teacher? Yes she is. Is he our new teacher? Yes he is.
