    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.

    Re: Compound Noun "english Teacher"

    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.

    Re: Compound Noun "english Teacher"

    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.
