The advice the others has given is very useful, and therefore I will dnot attempt to repeat it here. However there was something that popped into my mind when I read your story and that was attachment. Is it possible that the reason you are so devastated about this event is due to being attached to that particular teacher in that form. Teacheers needn't be robed to provide us with some vivid insights into the dharma.
I guess the advice that I would liekto give is,
If you feel that attachment may be a part, then use this incident to work on that aspect of yourself and ensure sthat it doesn't happen again.
