Was my teacher interested?

I am in college now but when i was in high school i had a huge crush on a teacher who was 6 years older than me. 
​One time during my junior year of hs, some kids were drawing wings on the board and standing in between them "it looked like they had wings" i thought it was cool and wanted to tried it myself because i wanted a picture. So i got up and while i was smiling and posing for the picture my teacher said "BEAUTIFUL". That took me by surprised bacause he was very quiet and he always tried to avoid conversations with girls as to not get in trouble. 
​About 2 1/2 years have past  since then but The other day he came to my mind now now I'm wondering...do you think he might of have been interested in me? I know its very little information but what do you think?
