    Yes, of course. If you're using sticky notes to cheat on a test, or to pass notes to other students- teachers have always taken those, no matter what they were written on. If you mean just a packet of unused sticky notes, that's more problematic. Your parents should call the teacher and ask why she took them.

    So long as you a minor under the age of 18, a teacher has the authority to request certain materials not be used in their classroom. "Sticky notes" may not be the problem so much as the substance that makes them "sticky" -- the sticky substance on "sticky notes" can attach to the chemicals on the paper of the textbook you are using, causing damage to the book. Remember, you are not the owner of the textbook, only the borrower of the textbook, and as such the book belongs to the school. If your "Sticky notes" are damaging the textbook, the teacher has the school authority to protect the school property by removing the "sticky notes" and demand you no longer use them in their class -- and for THAT reason. It is not personal against you, it is not personal against the need for reminders or the need for help finding your place in the book, it is the sticky substance on the "sticky note" paper that causes damage to the book, and THAT is what the teacher is attempting to prevent. Stop taking this personally and ask if you can use plain notepaper from a pad of paper NOT 'sticky note" paper and they should agree to such a compromise. Ask this and participate in working with the teacher instead of hate and resentment and carrying a grudge about this, and things should work out better. Good luck!
