Episode Four | Colleen Ritzer: Simply Devastating



Colleen Ritzer's star was rising. Admirable, driven, passionate, and kind.  She was in her second year teaching math at Danvers High School in Danvers Massachusetts. She loved her job. She always wanted to help. It was her calling. Until the afternoon of October 22, 2013 when one of the students she worked so hard for brutally ended her life. Colleen's loss was simply devastating to her family and the community.
