Lani Murray is excited to start this new venture. She has had over 8 years of experience in administrative roles at charter schools here in Utah.

Distance Learning Lead Teacher (3-6)
Diane’s favorite part of educating a child is seeing them light up when they explore something new and then apply the things they have learned with joy and excitement. She has taught in public schools and tutoring centers for over 20 years. She received her bachelor’s degree in education from Utah State University. Diane has taught Kindergarteners through 6th Graders and loves the unique differences of each age group. She is a firm believer in choice in education and is thrilled to work with parents and children who are finding new and exciting ways to educate their children. When she is not working you might find her chauffeuring her youngest son to and from tennis, going to lunch with her grown children, cycling with her husband, hiking on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, or just curled up with a good book. Her favorite books are Polar Dream by Helen Thayer, The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare, and Persuasion by Jane Austen.
