    I went in for an interview last week at a school (not a teaching position). My teacher from high school happened to randomly be in the interiew panel. I was a good student in his class, and he remembered me. The interview went well but not wonderful. I am hoping this connection will benefit me. Has anyone had a past teacher interview them and not receive an offer?

    No. I ruled out ever working in the school district where I went as a student. I feel it'd have been too weird.

    I still live in the same school district where I went to school. I am more than fine working with that teacher I had, but maybe he would think it would be too weird to have me there.

    I work at the school I attended. Everyone on the interview panel had been there when I was a student. It was a little weird at first, but then it was fine. Now a lot of my coworkers were my former students.

    I did not get the job. I guess having that connection did not work in my benefit.
