Second Grade

         2nd Grade Team 2023

Mrs. Alexandra Ratlief

My name is Alexandra Ratlief and I teach 2nd grade here at Westover. This is my sixth year teaching and my second year in second grade! In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my dog, cooking, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. I can’t wait to read more books this year and hear some new recommendations from my amazing students! See you in Second Grade!

 Mrs. Pelah Gittens

I am a second grade teacher at Westover and I am excited about observing my students reach their goals this school year. I grew up in the beautiful and sunny island of Barbados, a small island in the Caribbean. The first phase of my education was in Barbados and then I gained Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the United States. I have a passion for the outdoors and so I enjoy activities such as walking, bike riding, hiking, and gardening. In addition to this I enjoy reading, going to the movies, following world events and spending time with my friends and family.
