Angela I'm sorry that I didn't state that it needs to be in paragraph form. Like an essay question would be answered.

An administrator excels by demonstrating mastery of a number of interrelated personal characteristics. First, are concrete skills: a superlative administrator must be organized, efficient, and adaptable. Further, it is important to be a life-long learner and to continually strive for improvement. Second, are communication skills: in order to work with the diverse stakeholders in a school district, an administrator must be approachable and empathetic as well as eloquent and persuasive. Last, but certainly not least, an outstanding administrator will possess leadership qualities. An administrator must possess integrity, reliability, and vision. Such a leader will be loyal and always strive for the best interests of their students, staff and the entire district.
