Ms. Spiess

Before teaching, I spent five years as an exploration geologist in precious metals and worked with the United States Geological Survey for one year as a hydrologist. In my capacity as a hydrologist, I was fortunate enough to have lived and worked in various places in the Grand Canyon for four months, actually getting paid to raft down the Colorado River.

I am even more fortunate now - to be able to share my love of science with my students!
