Carter, Ben

Ben Carter

Hello, my name is Ben Carter (the students call me Mr. Benjamin) and I am a third grade teacher here at Cherokee Heights! I have been teaching for more than twenty years, most of that in New York City, before moving to Minneapolis in 2018 with my wife and two children, Sam and Jack. Outside of school, I spend a lot of time running, complaining about squirrels, and trying to get my children to eat their dinners.

One of the things I love most about teaching at Cherokee Heights is the community. It's great being at a school where the teachers and the families have been working together for years through different siblings and having that sense of connection and belonging.

I can be reached via email at ben.carter@spps.org, or via the phone in the main office, 651-293-8610 .
