I'm sure people will disagree with some of the placements of the titles (especially with adjunct, assistant, and associate professor) however, this is my opinion as I believe any type of professor is higher up the ladder than an instructor, for example.
The Peons: Graduate Teaching Assistant, Graduate Student Instructor, Miss, Ms., Mr., Teacher, Senior Teaching Assistant, Teaching Assistant, Teaching Fellow, Tutor, Your Name
The Bourgeois: Adjunct Instructor, Director of Studies, Docent, Head Teacher, Lecturer, Reader, Senior Lecturer, Sessional Lecturer
The Gentry: Adjunct Professor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Auxiliary Professor, Non-tenured Professor, Visiting Professor
The Nobles: College Professor, Dean, Department Chair, Distinguished Professor, Professor Emeritus, Resident Professor, Tenured Professor
