Tiffany Runia was nominated by a student, Kiersten Vukelich.

Mrs. Runia not only serves as Vukelich's teacher and volleyball coach, but as a second mom.

"She's always super caring and there for whoever needs her," Vukelich said. "She will do anything in her power to do what she can for you."

As a teacher, Mrs. Runia always sees her students' full potential and helps them with whatever they need help with. In volleyball, she always pushes her players to do better and lifts them up when they're down. She always strives to bring out the best from her team, her players, and from herself as a coach.

"Overall, she's amazing and definitely a LifeChanger for many people in our school!" Vukelich said.
