2022-23 Super Substitutes

December 2022 Recipients

Barbara McLaughlin

“Barbara is such a great sub for us at BBIA/Frontier STEM Academy. She is always here on time, has a great relationship with the students and supports the teachers she is filling in for by making sure students are on task.

In addition to all of this, she is also one we can call with emergency situations and she is always willing to step in and help us out.

We love having her here and she is a wonderful part to our Ben Barber/Frontier STEM family.”

Nominated by Ben Barber Innovation Academy/Frontier STEM

Kahla Elassi

“Kahla has been an instrumental addition to our Jandrucko Family.

She is faithful to our students and loves them as her own. We are so grateful for Mrs. K’s dedication and balance of calming demeanor and high expectations for our littlest learners.

We are truly blessed to have her as one of our constant subs we rely on.”

Nominated by Jandrucko Academy for Early Learners


“Without our substitutes, we really can’t continue the learning process...they’re a very critical aspect of Mansfield ISD and our vision, our mission and our goals.” - Dr. TRACEY Patton, Executive Director of Human resource Services
