the account the teacher made was supposed to be for students but she's had another people to it who we don't know and ask them not to be added

Go to her privately and ask her to take them down. If she still doesn't after that, go to a senior member of staff and ask them to speak to your teacher and the situation should sort itself out from there.

You own the image and she does not have permission to use it, see if you can get it removed through copyright.

You need to tell her tomorrow that your work must be removed asap. Be polite.
If she tells you to let it go or refuses then tell her, again calmly and politely, that you are going to the head of department to request that they remove them.
You can also write a letter of complaint to the head of the board of governors giving the full details of what happened.
They are your pictures and you refused permission. That’s enough.
Have you told your parents?

The the social media page was supposed to be for students only and my mum decided to test it and see if she could be added to it and she added my mum to it and other people we refused to be later on to this group chat but we don't know if it's because she's my mum

In theory you can but because it’s a civil matter you will have to pay all the expenses. Solicitors etc. And that does not come cheap
Are you bothered about your pictures being posted or are you looking for some quick cash?
you could lose and owe thousands and it can take years.
Focus on getting your pictures removed and getting an apology. That’s enough in this case

Yes you absolutely do have the right to have them removed. Even more so because when she asked you said no and she did it anyway.
If I were you, because you asked already, I would ask your mum to write a letter for you to take in.
Say you want them removed immediately and that you and your parents will take it further if she doesn’t.
If your mum wants help writing a letter pm me

It isn't as simple as just suing them.
I doubt you even have your work copyrighted?

Not to mention that some colleges/universities have policies in place that mean any of the work you do under them is owned by them.

Go and speak to the head of your department instead, and ask for them to be removed.

She automatically owns the copyright to her own photographs, as per the Berne Convention.
