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.

Beachside, OR 2021

This is my eleventh year to teach at Roosevelt and I love being a part of the Roosevelt community.

I earned my B.S. in biology at the University of Washington in Seattle,WA and received my M.Ed. from the University of Minnesota.

I have had many fun science jobs, including tracking orcas in the Salish Sea, 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

Louie the Leopard gecko

I live in the Roosevelt neighborhood and have two sons in college in Colorado and Washington.

In my classroom you can meet my colony of Madagascar hissing cockroaches and a new classroom pet is coming soon (a mammal).

The best way to contact me is email:

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