Sは主語、Vは動詞。  LDOCEはLongman Dictionary of Contemporary English

LDOCE - make your way
a) to go towards something, especially when this is difficult or takes a long time
make your way to/through/towards etc
The team slowly made their way back to base.
b) to gradually become successful in a particular job, activity, profession etc :
young people who are making their way in industry

E-DIC - make one's way ( to something [someplace] )
①「(~まで)(苦労しながら,どうにか)行く,進む,(~に)たどり着く」。make one's way across [along/back/over through/etc.] something (to something [someplace]) という形で使うことが多い。¶Jill made her way to the store through the deep snow.(ジルは深い積雪の中,どうにか店まで行った)¶I made my way over the mountain in the dark.(暗闇の中を山越えした)¶It was midnight before I finally made my way home.(やっと家にたどり着いたときには,もう0時になっていた)

だから、前記の make my way up to the front of the classroom という表現は (準備も十分できていないし発表したくないのに発表しろと言われたから陰鬱な気持ちで教室の前まで歩いていく というニュアンス。
