Director – Randy Maum
My name is Randy Maum. I have been an elementary Physical Education teacher in the East Baton Rouge Parish School System for 31 years all at Cedarcrest Southmoor Elementary. I was also the director of Bob Morgan Athletics, an instructional team sports program for children aged 4-14, for over 28 years. My wife, Rebecca Maum, and I have raised 3 children. Two are now teaching in public schools and one is in the military. We have two beautiful granddaughters and a talented grandson. I have dedicated my career to working with school aged children to help them grow socially, emotionally, physically and academically. I enjoy being a part of the Kidcam summer experience and look forward to another exciting summer at DOWNTOWN!
