It means someone forgot the definite article.

As written it means:

Does the Spanish teacher speak in the classroom?

What was probably meant was:

¿Habla el profesor el español en la clase.?

Does the teacher speak Spanish is the classroom?

Note. Normally the definite article isn't used after Hablar and before a language if the language immediately follows Hablar.

Hablo español. (immediately follows the verb)

Hablo bien el español. (separated from the verb).
