About Me: 

Welcome to my About Teacher web page. My name is Dave Perchinske. It is my ninth year teaching at SMS and my thirteenth year teaching overall. This year, I will be teaching 7 Social Studies (World History) on West and Unified Arts (Financial Literacy) 7th period. I hold several degrees, including a Ph.D. from the University of the Cumberlands. Outside of education, I am the head varsity swim coach and pool director at SHS. During my free time, I enjoy RVing, attending music festivals, lifting, and playing the banjo.
