DANVERS, Mass. (AP) - Grief counselors are meeting with students at the Massachusetts high school where authorities say a popular teacher was killed by a 14-year-old student in one of her math classes.
Classes won't resume until Friday at Danvers High School, where 24-year-old Colleen Ritzer was described as a caring teacher who would stand outside her classroom and say hello to even students she didn't teach.
Grief counselors will be available for several hours Thursday. Authorities have charged student Philip Chism with the crime that has shaken this middle-class community 20 miles north of Boston. Ritzer's body was found behind the school Wednesday.
Officials haven't released a cause of death or discussed a motive in the killing.
