Recruitment/talent Acquisition, Career Counselling
There's nothing wrong in making a mid-career switch, as long as one has BOTH the passion for the new role AND the aptitude/capability for it.
Coming to your query, focus on the PLUS aspects of what you can bring to the table in the teaching line. Usually practicing HR people make good Faculty professionals--provided they have the aptitude for teaching--since they can bring real-life situations into their teaching. And HR being all about practice of the human relation principles, it will help you.
Maybe you can begin by doing part-time assignments even while applying for full-time roles in private colleges. This could give you some exposure to the actual way to teach--since knowing something is one thing & teaching it is altogether something else [not all people can do both].
All the Best.
