My teacher came into class and started crying then stopped and carried on with the lesson but she was holding back crying throughout. No one really did anything as she said to just carry on and be nice (as we are anyway)
Would it be appropriate for me to send her on message (on MSTeams like we normally do) just saying I hope she’s okay/ that she feels better soon?

Even though she won't be at liberty to discuss what the issue is, she'll appreciate that you've taken time to contact her and shown concern. Teaching can sometimes be a thankless task.

That's very nice of you to consider, and I think you should definitely do it, it will undoubtedly cheer her up.
Just say something along the lines of: "Hi Miss, I hope you are okay after our lesson today. I really appreciate what you do for us as a class." Or something like that.

I debated this once with a teacher and ended up having a very awkward in-person conversation where I couldn't phrase what I wanted to say quite right lol.

I think a message is the best idea!

I think that is very kind and considerate of you, as other users have said. That said, she might have to keep it confidential - but I'm sure she will be grateful for your kindness. An extra point is that if you are really concerned still, perhaps you should speak to another teacher you trust about it?
