2020-21 Super Substitutes

March 2021 Recipient

Kehinde Akande
Rogene Worley Middle School

Staff at Worley Middle had this to say about Super Sub, Kehinde Akande

We are so blessed to have Mrs. Akande as a substitute at Rogene Worley Middle School.

Combine COVID with being a substitute in a middle school environment might sound like the perfect storm to most anyone else; however, our Mrs. Akande has handled it with grace and tenacity. The students report her as being both helpful and caring. She does all the things we hope for with a visiting teacher: she helps students with their work, and she encourages successful behaviors. However, since taking on the long-term sub position for one of our SpEd teachers, she has done even more. She follows up AFTER the class time with each of her students to ensure they are all on track. Her students perform well for her, because they know she is on their side.

The teachers see her as a deliverer! When a teacher leaves lesson plans for her, they’re carried out as written, but more than that, she makes sure that all the students that day fully understand the lessons. She handles each classroom as if they were her own, lending a hand to both students and teachers when needed. She is consistent, polite, patient and has a big heart.


“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, Director of HR Development
