Cutting two minutes off of a mile is a lot. An eight minute mile is 7.5 MPH, while a six minute mile is 10MPH. 10 MPH is a lot harder than 7.5 MPH. If you were going faster than that, it's even harder. A five minute mile is 12 MPH. You absolutely did push yourself too hard. None of this makes it ok for your teacher to ignore you when you are in distress but you absolutely pushed too hard.

You make sure that they're not on their back, direct them to a place that is safe to throw up (here it would probably be some grass), get them some water, something like that. When they're done, you walk them somewhere that it's safe to lie down, like the nurses office.

I suspect it’s more like going from a 23-minute mile to a 21-minute mile.

It probably is, but we don't know that for sure. They still pushed themself too hard. If I pushed myself up to a 5 minute mile, I'm pretty sure that I'd puke too.

How do you expect them to help you? Did you want them to scoop up your puke and bag it up as a souvenir? You’re obviously still in terrible shape and should work on your fitness instead of blaming others.

You need help to throw up? I don't even know how to help someone who is throwing up.

Report your teacher to the principle and have them redo their health and safety course. They have no business teaching gym if they can't see the symptoms, which can very well be fatal

Yeah that happens, nothing much a teacher could have done anyways. Congrats on the progress.
