After ten years of teaching in middle school and another Parent Partnership Program, Ms. Roughton began at Crossroads as a Drama Teacher and program lead for the Parent Partnership Program. When the Parent Partnership Program was fazed out she moved over to Crossroads. This year Laurie is embarking on the newest adventure of working in the Open Doors program. Laurie loves the freedom that she has to create and provide out-of-the box learning opportunities for out-of-the-box students. One of the things she is proudest of is the creation of a Theater Special Effects Make-Up class. Most recently Laurie has led and/or participated in committees that include the Trauma Informed Leadership Team, PLC leader, and Curriculum Adoption. Laurie has an Associates of Arts in Theater and a Bachelors of Arts in Liberal Studies with a minor in Theater from California State University Long Beach.
