We are missing quite a few details.  No, generally it wouldn't be considered kidnapping. 

Please re-post with a new, expanded account of what happened.

At the very most, what you are thinking it is is "false imprisonment".  Are you a minor? 

Review the following: http://www.sconet.state.oh.us/rod/docs/pdf/10/2009/2009-ohio-246.pdf


Also, review the rules of actions allowed and disallowed by teachers in your state. http://www.ode.state.oh.us/GD/Templates/Pages/ODE/ODEPrimary.aspx?page=2&TopicRelationID=520
