English & History teacher
Jack Seybold served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Brazil and taught English and History at San Francisco's Sacred Heart High School for thirty-five years.
After I graduated from Saint Mary's and began teaching at San Francisco's Sacred Heart High School, I earned a graduate degree in English Linguistics, and then continued to develop writing skills and to publish articles and poems. The day after I retired from a 35-year teaching career (mostly seventh-grade English and history), I received a call from an old friend who suggested we write a novel together. The result was The Rising: Journeys in the Wake of Global Warming, which we published through a Publish-on-Demand house and are now marketing. In these later stages of my professional life, I enjoy being a . . . writer!
