Deanne grew up in Utah County as the daughter of a seminary teacher and the missionary mom that introduced him to the gospel. Deanne recalls, “Seeing my parents’ love for the gospel has been a wonderful blessing in my life. I always wanted to be a missionary.” Deanne served a mission to the Philippines Cagayan de Oro Mission. After returning she married Randall Crockett. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University in Human Development and Family Sciences. After living in Pennsylvania and New Mexico for a few years, Deanne and her family returned to Utah with their then three children. A close friend invited them to an end-of-year celebration of their homeschool co-op group. “We were astounded to hear these students reciting 'The Gettysburg Address' and numerous scriptures and memorizations," she recalls. "We soon learned that this group of families were following the 'FACE' curriculum and we were allowed to join the group for the coming school year. After my first 'FACE' training in 2000, I remember going home and crying in gratitude to the Lord for bringing me a way to teach my children that would preserve and strengthen their faith. I was blessed to be mentored by wonderful teachers and mothers in that group--many of whom continue to have a profound impact on myself and American Heritage today.” Deanne and Randy have five children and are the proud grandparents of one, soon to be two, little girls. Deanne feels extremely blessed to be able to associate with the great families, teachers and administrators at American Heritage School. She is especially grateful for the privilege of working with the 8th grade teachers and students. She believes strongly in the mission of American Heritage School and the blessing it is in the lives of families.
