    I am not a teacher but I don't think that this sentence is wrong.
    I'll wait with you for other comments until someone clarifies it.

    The only thing wrong with english teacher as you have written it is that there should be a capital E on English: English teacher.

    Otherwise, it's fine.

    There are two sorts of English teacher - a teacher of English, and a teacher (of anything) who happens to be English. It would be neat if there were some typographical distinction, but I don't think there is one; in both cases, a capital E is required.
