Leading in a small town

Its tricky being a leader in a small community.  On the one hand, its kind of  nice when I see parents and students and they smile at me.  On the other hand, if I accept the praise, I’d better be ready to accept the judgement.  Can I go out and have a glass of wine with dinner?  What church do I decide to attend?  Should I open up to anyone (NO!).

I’m still learning to navigate this little county where I’ve served in two schools so far.  I wish we could collaborate more with other leaders, even just to vent and problem solved together.  Because out in public, I keep that smile on my face, no matter what.
