Biology- Ms. Carter

Welcome to Biology and IB Biology and Environmental Science!

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 ninth year to teach

Beachside, OR 2021
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 Strait of Juan de Fuca (now named 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 me!

I live in the Roosevelt neighborhood and have two

Louie the Leopard gecko
boys who attend(ed) Minneapolis Public schools.

In my classroom you can meet Greg the gecko and my colony of Madagascar hissing cockroaches.  I also have a mealworm farm.

When I'm not at Roosevelt, you can find me walking my dogs, or trying to improve my ukelele skills.

The best way to contact me is email:

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