I've had something similar happen. The year before I got hired I interviewed with my current district and wasn't chosen. The girl they hired instead has a mother who is an aid in the district, a father who is well known in the community. And she has a myspace page showing her doing a lot of drinking and partying. She now teaches 3rd grade! What gets me...she coaches high school volleyball, basketball and softball....quite a role model for those girls, wouldn't you say! It really steams me.
