Multi-Level School Counselor of the Year

Theresa Putnam-Genz

Louisa-Muscatine & Columbus Community School Districts

Theresa has served as a multi-level school counselor since 2007 and is currently shared between Louisa-Muscatine Community School District, Columbus Community School District and Muscatine Community College.  During that time, she has been involved in a number of professional activities including committee involvement and presentations to further the school counseling profession.  Superintendent Mike Van Sickle of Louisa-Muscatine Community School District shared, “Teaching students about college/career options, driving them to scholarship opportunities, talking to parents in the evenings, communicating with graduates and much more is what Ms. Putnam-Genz does” in her “new and innovative counseling program.”  Jennifer Fernandez-Miranda, a former student, wrote “Mrs. Putnam is the most passionate counselor I have ever encountered, and she has been very helpful to multiple students. I know this because of the community she helped create at Muscatine and the connections she still has with Columbus students.  She pushes us to be the best versions of ourselves. She encourages to take opportunities that we may not have had the guts to take on our own. She is there to comfort us during our difficult times and to celebrate with us during the best of times.”  Congratulations Theresa, on being recognized as the Iowa Multi-Level School Counselor of the Year!
