The Adviceberg: ask for some advice from Anne Weeks!

People often dream of living in a cooperative community. Well, Anne Macleod Weeks did for 40 years. As a teacher, dorm parent, guidance counselor, coach, principal, and advisor to faculty and parents in boarding schools, she pretty much experienced all that life can throw at you. She welcomes your questions and concerns. Submit your questions at the link below and, pending volume of submissions, you will receive guidance in next month’s Barnacle!
