Biology- Ms. Carter

Welcome to Biology  and IB Biology!

I wish to acknowledge and honor the Indigenous communities native to this region, and recognize that Roosevelt High School and all Minneapolis Public Schools were built on homelands and resources of indigenous people.  I recognize the Anishinabe and Dakota people as past, present, and future caretakers of this land as well as People who have and will continue to be important contributors to this land and our greater society.

This is my eighth year to teach at Roosevelt and I love being a part

of the Roosevelt community.

I majored in biology at the University of Washington in Seattle,WA and received my Master's in Education from the University of Minnesota.

I have had many fun science jobs, including tracking orcas in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, surveying trees in Washington state forests, and collecting and growing cells as part of a team studying colon and pancreatic cancer.  I even have a cell line named after me!

I live in the Roosevelt neighborhood and have two boys who attend(ed) Minneapolis Public schools.

In my classroom

you can meet Louie the leopard gecko, Drew the rose hair tarantula and Madagascar hissing cockroaches.

When I'm not at Roosevelt, you can find me walking my dog, reading, or trying to play my ukelele.

The best way to contact me is email:

If you want to call or text me, my Google Voice number is: 612-217-0768

When we're at school you can find me in room 257.
