Welcome to Fifth Grade at HAMO!!!

My name is Ms. Ramanand and I am your 5th Grade teacher for the 2019-2020 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 fifth year teaching Fifth Grade at Horizon Academy.


I am certified in Elementary Education (K-6), hold an endorsement in ESOL, and am currently working towards obtaining my endorsement in Reading. 

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


I look forward to a great year together!
