Mr. Brandon Tank


A short autobiography for the curious


I’m a married father of three. My wife is also a teacher in Marion County. This is my fourth year teaching at WPHS. I was an ESE paraprofessional at Horizon Academy prior to teaching. I’ve also worked in retail management and graphic design. Lacking any interesting hobbies, I occasionally pass the time by reading or writing. Time spent with my kids building with Legos is always fun, too.
