About Me

This is my 13th year teaching at Summit.  I was a Teacher Assistant my first year.  The next 2 years I taught 6h grade.  As soon as the junior high opened I started teaching PE.  Now, I teach 8th grade health and elementary PE. I am also the athletic director. I really enjoy watching all these kids grow up in front of me.  Go Falcons!
I am from Wayne, New Jersey.  I graduated from Rutgers University and then decided to travel.  I spent the next 3 years working and traveling around the United States, Mexico and Europe,  I moved to San Diego and met me husband.  I have 2 kids.  Alexa is 17 and Jett is 15.  Our family loves to hike, roller blade, ski, scuba dive and travel.  I try to be in nature as often as possible.

Students need to complete either a Google slideshow, movie, music video, or another idea that must be approved by Mrs. Arminen before starting. The rubric is attached for how I will be grading these projects. If you have any questions, please email me. I did not give a lot of direction on how I want this project completed because I would like to see your creativity come through. Have fun!
