About Mrs. Maytum....

2017-2018 will be my 11th year at LVHS.  I am excited to be here and love teaching.  I have been lucky to teach the subjects about which I am passionate: AP Literature, English IV, and Government & Economics. I am also the UIL Ready Writing and the UIL Literary Criticism coach, as well as one of the sponsors for the Friends of Rachel (FOR) Club.  I am looking forward to another great year at LVHS!
