|John Schweitzer, Assistant Superintendent
Education: MEd. Administration Kent State University, B.S. Education Miami University
Biography: A lifelong resident of Northeast Ohio, I began my educational career as a social studies teacher with the Parma City Schools in 1973. I remained in Parma as a teacher for 20 years, serving in a variety of roles including coach and club advisor of numerous organizations as well as Department Chairperson. I followed this with three years as a Deputy High School Principal at Parma Senior High. I left Parma in 1996 to begin a seven-year run as the Principal of Mentor High School in Mentor, Ohio, which I found to be an extremely enriching and rewarding experience. This led to me taking a position with the Euclid City Schools as Director of Staff Development in 2003 and most recently as Assistant Superintendent. I am really enjoying my time in Euclid with its many challenges and opportunities and the role I get to play in helping shape the future. In 1972 I married Debra, a Euclid resident whom I met at Miami University. Debra is currently a teacher with the Parma Schools. We have two grown children; both married and we are the proud grandparents of two grandchildren.
