ALAMOSA — Adams State University’s (ASU) education department is working to ensure teachers have the unique skills needed to succeed in the Valley.
Last week, ASU Department of Education Assistant Chairman Kurt Cary told the Alamosa Board of Education (ABOE) one of the institution’s goals was to continue to reach out to all Valley districts to improve education for all.
“I think it is something we need to do,” Cary said. “We need to be close to you guys.”

“There is a lot of work they have to do and complete,” Cary said. “There is a lot of head scratching, be we will get through it.”
