Mrs. Mokwunye, Ed. S.


Hello, my name is Elaine Mokwunye, Education Specialist, based at L. E. Willson school. I serve Sheffield’s families system-wide.  My role as the “Parent, Family, Engagement Liaison” is to understand how you and I can meet the needs of your child/children.  My role is to steer you towards careful considerations of our part as educators.  My position is to urge you to be creative while establishing clear expectations and goals.  I assist in building and maintaining comfortable environments for everyone.  I help others to recognize, respect, and appreciate differences. I believe that Sheffield communities contribute to motivating our students to aspire to higher expectations.

One thing that is certain in life is "CHANGE".  Sheffield families have been influenced or harmed by the COVID 19 virus.  Sheffield families will work together to preserve our way of life.  United we will rise above this time of difficulty as we educate our children and preserve our school culture.  

I am married, a mother of four and have a total of six grandchildren.  I have been employed with the Sheffield City School system since 2014. I have resided in Florence, Alabama for years.  

I am excited about working with your family.  We will have an enjoyable and successful 2020/2021 school year.   Go Dogs!
