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.

    I don't know what happens in England, but no matter how you pronounce the term in the US, the assumption would be that she teaches English. If you want to be sure it's understood that she is a teacher in England, then you'd have to say just that: She is a teacher in England.
