Ms. Jeni Martinson

I have been teaching Physical Education at Bruce F. Vento since 2017 but in SPPS since 1998.  I love being at Bruce Vento.  I enjoy collabrating with staff, creating relationships with students and parents. Besides teaching at Vento, I am a coach for Girls On The Run (GOTR).  This program empowers, builds confidence and relationships through physical activity and relevant lessons to girls in grades 3-5th. 

Minnesota has created it's own Physical Education standards this year (2018) to teach physical literacy.  I look forward to using these new standards to create fun, active, and meaningful lessons. 

Students will:

  1. Demonstrate competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns.

  2. Apply knowledge of concepts, principles, strategies and tactics to movement and performance.

  3. Demonstrate the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness.

  4. Exhibit responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others.

  5. Recognize the value of physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and/or social interaction.
