Instagram takeover: A day in the life of an Ohio teacher

On Wednesday, Cleveland teacher Gabrielle Jackson took over Sherrod’s Instagram account (be sure to follow Sherrod if you haven’t already!) to share what a day in her life looks like, and why she’s proud to be a member of Team Sherrod as he continues his work on behalf of Ohio’s teachers.

It turned out to be an eventful day—students participated in National Walkout Day in memory of victims of gun violence, and, since it was also March 14th, took part in Pi Day activities. Check out some highlights from the day below:

Pi, I mean, Hi 😊! Ms. Jackson here, a 5th grade teacher in Cleveland. I’m excited to take over Sherrod’s Instagram today to show a day in the life of a teacher. We have a fun day of learning ahead and we’re excited to share it with you! -Ms. Jackson #TeamSherrod

Rule #1: Coffee before a full day of learning with my students. -Ms. Jackson #TeamSherrod

It’s #NationalWalkoutDay and my students have had enough! Today we’re presenting statistics to our administration regarding gun violence in school and how we MUST take action. Kudos to these young students for making their voices heard and standing in solidarity with the students of Stoneman Douglas and across the country. -Ms. Jackson #TeamSherrod

What better way to celebrate #PiDay than with pie?

Pi Day is March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant—the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter—which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are necessary for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.

Which flavor of pie is your favorite? -Ms. Jackson #TeamSherrod

Beyond education, I’m passionate about making sure everyone has the opportunity to vote, and want to give a shoutout to #TeamNEOYBD and #TeamOYBD.

Sherrod Brown has consistently voted against discriminatory voter ID laws and has asked the Department of Justice to review voting laws that disenfranchise minorities. He also helped lead the fight to stop the voter suppression bill from becoming law in Ohio. -Ms. Jackson

Whether it’s connecting educators with Ohio business leaders to advance economic development or voting for the largest increase in federal student aid since the G.I. Bill, it’s clear that Sherrod is fighting and delivering for Ohio’s teachers—that’s why I’m proud to be on #TeamSherrod. —Ms. Jackson
