Remembering Math Teacher Colleen Ritzer

"Dear Ms. Ritzer, the whole entire school will miss you!!!! You were my favorite math teacher ever and I'll miss you!!!!!"

"My prayers go out to my home room teacher Ms. Ritzer and her family she was the nicest an sweetest teacher I had ever met and this is so sad."

"I hope when I'm older I can be half as nice as Ms. Ritzer."

Along with her students, the members of the Massachussetts Education Association (MTA), and the National Education Association (NEA), mourn this terrible loss. We are deeply saddened by the loss of beloved Danvers math teacher Colleen Ritzer.
