Why is 教 pronounced as 1st tone here? 你认识教水墨画的老师吗? I have just seen a learn Chinese video where they teach the sentence 你认识教水墨画的老师吗? They teach 教 here as 1st tone, not 4th tone. Why? I thought 教 was 4th tone? When and why do you say it with a 1st tone?

教 as 1st tone is verb. ex:你认识"教"水墨画的老师吗? 教 as 4th tone is at the front of the noun. ex: "教"師 (teacher)
