    Just would like some advice really:

    Basically I had a complete mental breakdown in front of my teacher earlier today. She was nice about it and said I could sit in her classroom during our free and just relax. I have her phone number, would it be weird if I thanked her for her help and apologised for having to deal with me? How do I word it?

    I'm not sure why you have her phone number, that's the weird bit.

    But assuming that's all above board and the number you have is a work phone that all your class have, then you can just tell her what you've said here.

    Do you think she’d share it with other teachers though? I don’t want all my teachers knowing I’m a complete wreck right now lmao

    No need worrying over that - I doubt she did, confidentiality is important.

    Depends what you mean by mental breakdown, if you just mean getting upset and crying then no i dont think they have time for that. If you mean a safeguarding issue where you are a danger to yourself then they are obliged to tell people higher up and your parents.

    I doubt she'd go around actively telling people (not that I know her personally), but it's likely that if she thinks you need extra support from someone else then she'd tell them. Not that you being grateful for her help would affect that decision.

    I guess it’s unprofessional but I’ve had to text her before about homework. I’m in 6th Form, it’s quite normal to have teacher’s phone numbers here. I find it easier to say what I feel in a message rather than in person, that’s all

    you'd probably be better off emailing her tbh (her school email)..
    that way everything you and her say is on the school's system (i dont mean people can see it i just mean that if any issue arose you have all the evidence there on the schools systems to protect both of you) and is more on the right side of the professional line

    I would write her a handwritten letter! Just tell her how you are so thankful for her help and how she handled it. Let her know how much it means to you!

    Teacher here - I also work in Further Education (16-19) and I have a work phone with a numbet that I give to students. Contrary to what others above have said, it seems to be standard practice at your institution and so texting your teaching wouldn't be a problem. I had more than one emotional episode with my curriculum manager who mentored me through college, he had been teaching for well over fifteen years so it wasn't something he hadn't seen before. A quick Cheers *Sean, I owe you and slight nod would convey all the thanks and appreciation I had for him. So don't worry about going all out in your thank you if that isn't your style
