William Mosley, (Coach Will), Physical Education

"My name is Will Mosley. I attended the University of Missouri and Ole Miss on a baseball scholarship. I was a high school All-American in basketball and baseball while excelling in academics with a 4.0 GPA.  I have been coaching for 17 years and am currently the Varsity Baseball Coach at Drake High School and Director of California Daredevils youth baseball organization.  I have a passion for helping student-athletes and I always get a kick out of seeing young people chase their dreams."  - Coach Will

"My name is Coach Tim, and I am very excited to be teaching P.E. at Mary Silveira. I live about a mile from the school with my wife Jen who is a kindergarten teacher and my two daughters, Anna, a second grader at Dixie and Ella who just started her last year of preschool. I also have a daughter, Ava, who is a junior at UC Berkeley. Growing up, I loved P.E., and I was a Physical Education major at Westmont College in Santa Barbara.  I love all types of sports, especially running.  I am currently the Cross Country coach at Novato High school and I run for a local club called Tamalpa Runners. Our goal is to get all the kids moving & exercising while learning new skills and having lots of fun! I believe PE can and will help kids become better happier students." - Tim Wallen






Gisele Clark, Art Technician

"Hello my name is Gisele Clark, a professional educator and art enthusiast. I have my CA Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and an MA in Elementary Education. I've been a general education teacher for over 12 years in San Francisco and have run my own art enrichment program for the past 4 years. I am uber passionate about art and have a need to create and decorate. I'm super excited to be a part of the MES team and can't wait to ignite that creative spark in the students." - Gisele Clark





SAM 3450Edwards, Kindergarten-2nd Grader Music and Movement teacher

"My name is Brett Edwards and my family just moved to San Francisco from Richmond Virginia.  Back in Virginia for the previous six years I have taught Music at a Private school ranging from Pre-K age through 5th grade. I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education with a concentration in Classical Guitar.  I have a passion for teaching music and strive for every student to have a fun musical experience in the classroom. I am grateful to have found a community, which reminds me of where I lived in Virginia, to begin my California experience!  When I am not teaching I enjoy exploring California with my wife and son. Back in Virginia I also enjoyed playing gigs in my band around Richmond. I am excited about starting the 2017-2018 school year at Mary E. Silveira and look forward to teaching all our students, Music and Movement!" - Brett Edwards
