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

Demonstrate the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness.
Exhibit responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others.
Recognize the value of physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and/or social interaction.
