"I was just wondering, if you teach/compete as a professional for a while and then decide you don't want to anymore can you go back to competing as an amateur? If you totally give up your job teaching? Or can you never compete as an amateur anymore?"
That is up to the organization controlling the competitions where you wish to compete as an amateur. Many of them will allow people to apply for re-instatement, usually after taking some period of time off from competing at all.
