Homework Help: English Expressions

ex) She is an English teacher.
English teacher is a compound noun. When we stress the first noun, 'English', it means that she teaches English as a teacher.
However, when we stress 'teacher', 'English' is used as an adjective. In this case, 'English teacher' means a teacher from England.
Is the explanation grammatical? Would you check them?
