Rejection #6

So I've interviewed for 6 public school teaching jobs. Four interviews were in July and early August. One interview last week was for part time teaching job. Last interview was yesterday, and I just got the call today that they are considering someone else.
It's like I don't know what else to do. I research the schools, dress properly, and show as much passion/confidence as I can. I don't make any "obvious" mistakes.
Some interviews I performed poorly, so I can understand their rejection.
But some interviews I know I made a connection, so their rejection really frustrates me.
Has anybody ever faced a similar circumstance? Any words of advice or encouragement would be appreciated.

UPDATE - just got call for interview on Friday. Hopefully this makes lucky number 7!

Good luck! You can only do the best you can do. Sometimes it's just their feeling on whether you're the right fit. You could be fabulous, but they might feel you won't fit as well as someone else. It's really frustrating I think 7 IS the luckiest number of all, though! Let us know how it goes.
