Mr. Tate Brand

Hello! My name is Mr. Brand and I have been teaching at Waynesville High School since 2019. My wife and I are both from Piedmont, MO where we fell in love at the Bluff View Marina. We are puppy parents to a beagle/blue heeler mutt named Duncan and a goldendoodle puppy named Graham.

I went to high school at Clearwater High School in Piedmont, where I graduated in 2015. I obtained my Associate of Arts in General Education from Missouri State University-West Plains in 2016. I then transferred to Missouri State University-Springfield. After student teaching at Central High School, I earned my Bachelor's in Education in 2019 from MSU. I then earned my Master's in Chemistry in 2021 from South Dakota State University (GO JACKRABBITS!).

This year I am teaching Chemistry I, Pre-AP Chemistry, and AP Chemistry. I also coach the WHS ESports team.

I love to watch movies, play video games, and spend time with my wife, friends, and family.

Feel free to contact me for any questions or concerns that you may have through email at, this is the best way to get ahold of me.
