Jennifer Garner Shares Inspiring Post About Her Elementary School Teacher: 'She Saw Me as Me'
By Elizabeth Stanton
Jennifer Garner has nothing but praise for her childhood teacher, and is celebrating World Teachers' Day by sharing that message and the importance of education with her Instagram fans.
The mom of three shared a picture with herself and her elementary librarian and teacher, Annyce McCann, on Thursday, along with a passionate post about the impact she had on Garner as a girl.
"Mom McCann, as I called her, did not see me as a rowdy little girl or as a daydreamer or even as the middle of the Garner Girls," she wrote.
"She saw me as ME and taught me all kinds of things about myself -- that I was creative, that imagination is to be celebrated, that I was worthy of her time and attention and that books hold the whole world."
The Miracles From Heaven star is involved with several charities supporting children and education. She recently traveled to Houston, Texas, on behalf of Save the Children, where she visited an elementary school and helped give out donations of baby supplies to families with young children.
