Teachers from outside the New Bedford School District were invited to Keith Middle School Saturday to see what it's like to teach in the city and submit applications during a career fair. 

There are openings for a variety of positions in the district available to all types of applicants.

Supt. Dr. Pia Durkin says a key to Saturday's event was allowing current teachers to share their own stories with applicants.

Despite the gloomy weather, the fair saw a large turnout of prospective applicants.

This is the only job fair held in the district this year, while many others are scheduled at a number of colleges across New England in the coming months.
