Tania is fortunate to be able to do her two passions in life: art and running. She teaches art and is the boys’ and girls’ head cross country and track coach at Santa Monica High School. It is her daughter, Alise, who makes her life complete.

“A good teacher or coach must not only understand others, but himself or herself as well.”
