About

Hello! I’m Ann.

I’m wife to Matt and we live near beautiful Lake Michigan with our children.

After teaching in an elementary classroom for several years, I have spent well over a decade becoming a veteran homeschool mom.

In 2016, I founded Four Square Community – a Charlotte Mason-inspired homeschool co-op that has grown to connect hundreds of local families. Four Square offers academic and enrichment classes for students in preschool through high school. 

Beginning in 2019, Matt joined me in leading and serving the growing Four Square Community. He brings twenty years of traditional classroom experience ranging from preschool through university. Together we authored The Book of Centuries: A Personal Timeline of History

In 2021, I created Without Doors, a unique Charlotte Mason curriculum inspired by Four Square Community. Using Without Doors has revitalized our homeschool and I hope it does the same for yours. I am passionate about sparking JOY in home education, one family at a time. 

As you create an educational feast for your children, Four Square offers enrichment opportunities, inspiration, and valuable curriculum resources.

We are grateful for God’s goodness and faithfulness and give Him all the glory!

"And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:19
