Mrs. Shannon Cotham

I have worked as a Speech Language Pathologist at Ridge Spring Monetta Elementary School for 22 years. This year I am on the Early Learning Team, serving RSM Elementary, Busbee Elementary, Millbrook Elementary, and Monetta and Salley Headstarts.  At RSM, I will be providing speech therapy services through Individual Education Plans to students attending RSM's early learning special education class.  I will also provide push in language lessons to the Early Learning Special Education classes at RSM, Busbee, Millbrook and the Headstarts.  I am at Millbrook on Monday and Thursday, at RSM and Busbee on Tuesdays and Fridays, at Monetta Headstart on Wednesday, and Salley Headstart on Friday.  

I live in West Columbia with my husband Bill, our cats, Buzz and Neil, and rescued Indian Ringneck Parrot, Neela.
