It may be easier to list what I did right. But I would prefer the long list of what is wrong. How could I have impoved this shot?

might try spot metering next time? I think the window and projector might have caused this. what do you think?

The top of the screen is running through his head. Maybe a shallower depth of field would have reduced the effect.

Why not used the camera in the portrait orientation? I mean the main subject is the teacher with the book... And as yogibear said, try a shallower depth of field next time!

Shoot portrait orientation and lose the window on the right side. Stand up so that the subject is entirely backed by the projector screen.

I agree with portrait instead of landscape. I should have tried that but I never know which one will look better. Dof was the best I could do in these circumstances. It was a class of 9 people that I was in so I couldnt move from my seat and the lens isnt very good. The lns was at f4.5 and couldnt get any wider because of the distance between us. I need a better lens for stuff like this. Is there any way to change the DOF without changing the f stop?

Yes, frame the subject tighter (you move closer with same focal length or use longer focal length from where you are).

maybe I should have asked if I could stand instead of sit, but it wouldnt have helped DOF because I would have to stand in the back of the room. Plus I am a little vetically challenged.
