Student or Learner
1. just wonder if ''classroom teacher'' can be replaceable for ''homeroom teacher'' ? do you have the term of classroom teacher similar in meaning to homeroom teacher?
2. ''at class'' is possible instead of in class?

(1) I think that there is a difference between classroom and
homeroom teacher here in the United States.
(2) In my state, many middle and high school students
attend a homeroom each day in the morning. They do not study
a subject. The object of homeroom may be to take official
attendance and to learn about school news. In other words,
homeroom prepares the students for the day.
(3) A classroom teacher would be the teacher who teaches a
specific subject, such as math, history, language, etc.
(4) In some high schools, for example, a student may have one
homeroom teacher and six classroom teachers.
P. S. Some high schools are very big -- thousands of students.
I think that one reason homeroom was started was to give a
student a sense of home. S/he may have the same homeroom
teacher (and fellow students) for the entire time that s/he attends
that school. The idea is to give a student a sense of community
so that s/he does not feel so isolated. On the other hand, some
schools (and students) feel that homeroom is a waste of time and
do not provide one.
