The delegates remembered Colleen Ritzer, a math teacher in Danvers who was slain at her school, and other educators who have died in the past year. U.S. Senator Edward Markey and AFT Massachusetts President Tom Gosnell greeted the delegates. Greg Anrig, vice president for policy and programs at The Century Foundation, delivered the keynote address.
