Recently my Cousin has left his Sixth Form. He wasn't enjoying it and he was getting stress, anxious, worried and ill from all the work he had to do and the pressure he was put under. He's been having thoughts about leaving since the middle of year 12 (In the Year 13now ) and throughout the state he has been in he felt like he could only talk and trust one teacher - his favourite teacher who knows the situation he was in and has supported him throughout. This teacher said that his safety and well being was more important than anything else in the entire world and would happily 'drop everything' if he ever needed to talk. My cousin is a kid in care who got put there when his parents died when he was really small so i guess he has never had this attention and affection from someone before.
I want to know should I write a little thank you to his Teacher just to let him know how amazing he was to my cousin or would be a little weird for him to receive an email from someone he doesn't know because I don't go to the same school as my Cousin. The teacher knows that my cousin has talked to me about his situation because my cousin has shown him some of the emails that we send each other. Do you think my cousin's teacher would appreciate an email from me or would he see it as a safeguarding issue?
Thank you note to a teacher watch

YES. Yes. Please send her an email or letter. She needs to know how much her support is well appreciated so she can continue to do the same to other students and change their lives. I wish I had a teacher like that..

definitely send the teacher a letter!
