"I think it's a good way for people who think they want to be teachers to get a chance in a non-stressful environment to talk to people about education," said Nicolette Nikki Dennis, principal of Will Rogers College Jr. & Sr. High School.

Dennis says about 50 to 100 people showed up and says she thinks she found at least one person she's going to hire.
