My name is Jacob (Jake) Brand, and I will be teaching 9-12 Special Education while assisting with HS Volleyball. I was raised in Homer, Nebraska (pop. 528), a small town in Northeast Nebraska. My dad, Darrin, is the Branch Manager/Loan Officer for First Community Bank in Homer, and my mom, Amy, is the District Secretary for Homer Community Schools. My little sister, Maya, is at St. Lukes College in Sioux City, IA pursuing a degree in Nursing (she wants to be a nurse in the Psych/Behavioral Health Ward) and her boyfriend, Alex, is apart of the Iowa National Guard and will attend Western Iowa Tech CC to pursue a degree in Crimilal Justice. Two other additions to our family are Oliver and Dante, both Goldendoodles who love their Uncle Jake. I attended Homer Community Schools from Kindergarden through high school and participated in Basketball, Track and Field, National Honor Society, and Student Council. I graduated in 2015.
After high school, I attended Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. While at Morningside, I was a double major in Special Education and American History/Government Teaching, I was a 4-year starter for the Men's Volleyball team, a 3-year captain, and a Student Assistant for the Women's Volleyball program. I was also involved in numerous Education clubs, and two National Honor Societies: Kappa Delta Pi, honor society in Education, and Phi Alpha Theta, honor society in History. I graduated in May of 2019.
I greatly enjoy being apart of the Lakeview Community, and I look forward to another year of being apart of this flourishing district.
