Sorry to correct you, but the result is correct. As Carsten said:

The :CATEGORY: property applies to the entry headline _above_ it, and to
the entire tree below it

So in your example

* Teaching
:CATEGORY: Teaching
** Sanskrit I (WS08)                        :PROJECT:
 :CATEGORY: Sanscrit I

the ":CATEGORY: Sanscrit I" applies to the entry _above_, i.e.

** Sanskrit I (WS08)

and  the  ":CATEGORY: Teaching" is overridden. The TODO
entries in your file are _below_  ":CATEGORY: Sanscrit I"
so they will show up fine.

Think of the PROPERTIES as an attribute of the entry above.

Ok, I understand now. Thanks for explaining.

What I want to do seems quite simple and natural to me. What would be
the org-way to get my desired output? Can I use two different property
keywords, one for areas and one for projects? How do other people do

There are three ways to do what you want.

1. Put a CATEGORY property into every child of "Sanscrit I"
2. Work around it with a "Teach/Sanscrit I" category
2. Change what you *want* by realizing that it is actually a good
   convention what we have right now.
