Microsoft teams

I have joined an online language class which uses Microsoft teams.
I downloaded Teams on my phone, and was concerned to see a 'files' category. When I click on it, all files from my One Drive are there.
I am worrying about other members of the class being able to view my personal files. Can this happen?
I am a bit (a lot) technically challenged, so please excuse if this is a silly question.
