Student Says Slain Teacher Asked Philip Chism to Stay After Class for Math Help


Jennifer Berger told ABC News she and Ritzer were best friends for nearly their entire lives and she was always destined to be a teacher.

"I remember when we were in kindergarten she brought in her little sister for show-and-tell. She always loved working with kids. I think they just gravitated towards her and I think as much as they loved her she loved them a hundred times more," Berger said.

Ritzer is the second teacher allegedly killed by a student in the U.S. this week. A Sparks, Nev., middle school teacher was allegedly shot by a 12-year-old student Monday.

With reporting by ABC News' Anthony Castellano and Phil Dean.
