A teacher who went the extra mile

Meanwhile, outside the courtroom, in the tight-knit community of Danvers, many were at a loss. Ritzer was beloved, her friends say. She posted inspirational messages on her Twitter account and went the extra mile to help students.

"She was talking on Saturday about this year was a good year. She was teaching freshman for first time. She was happy," said Jen Berger, Ritzer's best friend. "I don't even know what the world is like without her. It's a scary thought."

Sympathy spread through the region, making its way into the baseball World Series. Bleachers full of fans who had assembled to watch the Boston Red Socks take on the St. Louis Cardinals observed a moment of silence in Ritzer's honor, before Game 1 began at Boston's Fenway Park.

Charlotte Dzerkacz in 2011 taught at the same middle school with Ritzer, during which time the two became close friends.

Ritzer seemed to always wear a wide smile and was approachable to students and colleagues alike.

"She was energetic, she was compassionate," Dzerkacz said. "You couldn't ask for anything more from a teacher or a friend."

A quiet and normal student

Chism is a quiet young man, those who know him said. He excelled at soccer and made a harmless impression.

"He ... seemed quiet and reserved, but he just seemed normal," said Ariana Edwards, who was in Chism's English class.

Chism didn't drink, do drugs and came from a good family, one of his closest friends said. He described Chism as a good athlete who was shy at first but eventually warmed up to people, adding he hadn't been acting strangely lately.

This friend and others got their first hint something was awry when Chism didn't show up for soccer practice Tuesday. The team ended up setting out to look for their teammate, after seeing texts that he was missing.

As they and police were looking for him -- and after Ritzer was killed -- Chism went to the movies, a source with knowledge of the investigation said.

Chism was a newcomer to Danvers, a town of about 26,000 people. His family had bounced around as he lived in different cities in Tennessee and Florida, since he was in fourth grade, authorities in those states said.

Student suspect was in slain teacher's class

Blodgett, the prosecutor, declined Wednesday to offer specifics on the relationship between the suspect and the late teacher, though his office said Chism attended one of Ritzer's classes.

All seven schools in the North Shore town closed Wednesday, as investigators did their work and students and residents mourned the loss of Ritzer. Everything will reopen Thursday except the high school, but counselors and grief specialists will be available there for two hours during the day, said Superintendent Lisa Dana. Classes throughout the town are set to resume Friday, she said.

Ritzer graduated from Assumption College in 2011. She was working on getting a master's degree in school counseling at Salem State University, that school said.

"She believed children have much to offer and often do not realize how special they are as individuals," the university said. "In her application to Salem State she said she was dedicated to 'helping students in times of need.'"

Ritzer was known to take to Twitter to dole out homework assignments and wisdom to her students.

"No matter what happens in life, be good to people," she wrote in August. "Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind."

I wonder if he was infatuated/obsessed with her?  12 year old crush taken to a whole new level.


Student/teacher news stories usually have some underlying issues. I don't wish to make her look bad but I wonder if they had some weird relationship. Unfortunately the best case scenario is that he's crazy and did it for no reason.

My kids may not like me all the time and they may say that I am a strict teacher, but I would never have to worry about taking my life in my hands to teach them.  This is fukking ridiculous.
I understand . My sister ask for earlry retirement after the kids slash her tires for fun. She taught HS kids for 23 years .

This is sad. He is so young. She probably would never have thought that a student was a threat in that way. My oldest son is 12 and when I see him and his friends I see babies.They play football, goof around, play video games etc like normal kids. I couldn't imagine someone their age even thinking about murder or being capable of something so violent. But I know that we are living in evil times.

Nothing . The police are looking at footage from the school 164 cameras . I can't believe he pulled her from the bathroom into the woods and no one saw anything . Check CNN . Really good on updates .



How did this happen though? it just doesn't sound right.

That was my first thought too. Either that or some type of infatuation.
