If found guilty, the person is removed from office. That is the only punishment from the impeachment trial. However, after removal from office, he could be indicted and prosecuted by the courts for any crimes like any other citizen would be.

Impeachment only removes the official from his government position. Any other penalties would be imposed by a criminal court, if and when he is tried and convicted.

Impeachment is only the start of what can be a lengthy process that may or may not lead to an official's removal from office.

Impeachment is not a crime, it is a process.

Is your teacher right if she said Andrew Jackson was impeached?

No. Andrew Jackson was never impeached; a later President, Andrew Johnson was. Many people confuse impeachment with being removed from office. In reality, being impeached simply means the US House of Representatives voted to file charges, called Articles of Impeachment, against a government official. After someone is impeached he (or she) has the right to a trial in the Senate to determine whether he is guilty of the charges and should be removed from office. President Johnson was impeached by the House of Representatives, but the Senate voted to acquit him (found him not guilty), so he remained in office until the end of his term.
