Mark Rebora grew up in Chicago, he attended Loyola Academy where he excelled in both football and wrestling. He went on to graduate from Cornell College in Iowa where he had an outstanding wrestling career.
Mark began his teaching and coaching career first at Gordon Tech, and then at his alma-mater Loyola Academy, but soon came to Glenbrook North, where he spent the majority of his career. In his 26 years at Glenbrook North, he taught a variety of Physical Education courses, his favorites were freshmen boys PE and the most challenging course we offer, Advanced Physical Management.
Mark coached football, wrestling and water polo. He served as our Head Freshmen Football coach, our Head Wrestling coach for over 20 years and our Head Boys’ Water Polo coach since 2000.
He had a positive influence on thousands of students and athletes over his more than 30 years in education. He was a well-loved and respected member of our Glenbrook North Community, who always had a smile on his face and truly enjoyed being an educator and coach. We are all going to miss our dear friend Coach Rebora.
