Welcome to Fifth Grade at HAMO!!!

My name is Ms. Ramanand and I am your 5th Grade teacher for the 2017-2018 school year at Horizon Academy at Marion Oaks!


I was born and raised in New York. Shortly before the age of fourteen, my family relocated to New Jersey, where I attended and graduated high school and college. I majored in Elementary/Middle School Education and minored in Earth Science. As part of my collegiate education, I held three internships alongside top-notch educators, who greatly influenced me as a teacher. In New Jersey I held two certificates in education- the first in Early Childhood Education and the second in Elementary Education.


At the end of 2012, I relocated to Florida, and began working at Horizon Academy in 2013.
This is my third year teaching Fifth Grade at Horizon Academy.


I am certified in Elementary Education (K-6) and I am working to obtain my ESOL endorsement.

I was honored to be Horizon Academy’s 2016-2017 Rookie Teacher of the Year!


I love animals of all kinds but I especially love cuddling with my two dogs Liam and Lyle.


When I am not in my classroom, I can be found travelling with my dogs and friends, taking photos, shopping, and reading.


I am a huge fan of black and white photos, the New York Mets and the Dallas Cowboys, starry nights, rainy days, and yoga.


I look forward to a great year together!
