FACULTY LOUNGE edgewood features organ aficionado ed williamson

Edgewood fifth grade teacher, Mr. Ed Williamson, is a native Californian who grew up in north San Diego County. He attended high school at San Pasqual Academy and earned his BA in Liberal Arts from Loma Linda University, La Sierra Campus.

Currently, he lives in Tustin, within walking distance of the Edgewood campus. He and his wife (who is also a teacher) have two grown children and one grandchild. Adding spunk and joy to their household are a MinPin and a Long-haired Chihuahua. 

Mr. Williamson played basketball on his high school and college teams, but music was his true passion and continues to be to this day.  He began studying piano at the age of nine.  He also studied organ for four years during high school and is currently a member of the American Guild of Organists.  He plays for various churches here in Southern California.  In addition to playing music, Mr. Williamson enjoys watching movies, attending plays, going to the symphony and watching sports – especially the Angels and Lakers.

Mr. Williamson has been teaching elementary school for 25 years. He has taught fifth grade at Edgewood since 1996. In addition to his teaching duties, he enjoys coaching DSL flag football and basketball.  “I feel truly blessed to be a part of the faculty here at Edgewood,” he says.
