"Are teachers allowed to express their personal opinions in the classroom?"

Yes. They can express their opinion of a piece of literature in English class. They can express thier opinion in something like an ethics class. It would be vaid to express an opinion on a matter of historical dispute such as (eg Is Robin Hood based on a real person?). But if it is a teacher's personal opinion that the square of the hypotenuse is NOT equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, or that Spain is south of Nigeria, then no.
