What is the difference between "al" and "a la"?

Consider the following sentence: > Vamos a entender a la maestra. (We are going to understand the teacher) I remember seeing in a similar sentence the word `al` being used instead of `a la`. So are these two ways of referencing the person interchangeable? Or are there specific contexts in which one must be used over the other?
