My name is Ann Marie McCoy. I have been married to my loving and dedicated husband, Jim, for 23 years, we
have been blessed with 7 children ranging from 3-22. I grew up in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. I met my husband at
Christendom College in Virginia where we both graduated with a B.A. in History. Following college I taught for
a year at Holy Family Academy, before my oldest child arrived. We moved to Minnesota in 1999 to be near
family. I am dedicated to my Catholic Faith, family and education. “My grace is sufficient for you,”
(2 Corinthians 12:9) has guided through my homeschooling journey for 16 years. I have just finished my second
year with All Saints Homeschool Coop. It has been a blessing to have this opportunity to share my love of
History with the students and to have the support and friendship of fellow homeschoolers. Over the years I
have participated in various co-ops leading and teaching History, Literature and Catechism. The study of history is very important to me. Dr. Warren H. Carroll, founder of Christendom College, taught: “Truth exists and the Incarnation happened.” It is in studying our past that we can better live in our present age.
