AITA for reporting my teacher to the principal for making a joke?

This may sound ridiculous but hear me out. My state history teacher is known for being a hit or miss. She either really likes you or really hates you and she seems to really hate me. I do all of her work and do nothing but respect her. In our school, we have to go to the bathroom in groups because of people tearing up the bathrooms so we have a designated bathroom time. In class, we were watching a movie and it was our bathroom time. 

I didn't realize that someone already asked so I asked if we could go because we almost always miss our bathroom break and I really needed to go. She screamed at me asking if I was going to die if I didn't go and as every kid would, I said yes I would. She then responded with “well go ahead and do it already.” 

This really upset me since I’ve been struggling with my mental health for a few years and my depression was getting really bad. We went to the bathroom and I was crying when I got out because of her remark. She then proceeded to mock me while I was in the corner crying saying things like “look at [my name]!” 

When the whole class went back in the classroom and came up to me and asked why I was crying as if she didn’t already know. I told her ”you told me to die” and she claims I twisted her words to make her look like the bad guy. I texted my mom and she came to talk to the principal about the situation and I was moved out of the class to do her work from a different room from a google meet. It’s been a few months since this situation happened yet I can’t get it off of my mind. 

Maybe the joke wasn’t so bad? Was I overreacting? Was I being too sensitive?
