Dr. Perchinske

Welcome to my About Teacher web page. My name is Dave Perchinske. It is my eighth year teaching in the Solon City Schools District and my twelve year teaching overall. This year I will be teaching 7th Grade Social Studies on West and Unified Arts - Financial Literacy 7th Period. Currently, I hold a BS in History from John Carroll University, an MEd in Social Studies and Global Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and an EdS in Administration and a PhD in Leadership at the University of the Cumberlands. Outside of education, I am the Head Men's and Women's Varsity Swimming and Diving Coach, as well as the Head Coach of the Solon Stars Swim Club. When I do have free time, I spend it with my wife, enjoying activities such as RVing, boating, hiking, music festivals, lifting, and attending as many Cleveland sporting events as humanly possible.  I also recently began taking banjo lessons.  And although it has been a bit of a struggle, I am having a great time learning how to play!
