Oklahoma native James Marsden is showing support for Oklahoma teachers during their call for increased education funding

The Stillwater native, best known for his roles in "X-Men," "Enchanted," and "Hairspray," posted a photo on Instagram wearing a t-shirt embroidered with teacher support phrases. 

Marsden's post read, "I support Oklahoma teachers." #okwalk4kids #togetherwearestronger #isupportoklahomateachers #supportteachers."

In 2012, James visited Northridge Elementary School to read to students; the same school his younger sister taught.
