Heather BallBall, Heather

Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher & FCCLA Advisor
Platte County High School

My purpose is to empower individuals, families and communities.
A question that is often asked, “What is FCS?”  My response is, family and consumer sciences is the comprehensive body of skills, research, and knowledge that helps people make informed decisions about their wellbeing, relationships, and resources to achieve optimal quality of life.  The field represents many areas, including human development, personal and family finance, housing and interior design, food science, nutrition, and wellness, textiles and apparel and consumer issues.


The Family and Consumer Science Department at PCR-3 has the opportunity to offer the following courses: Career Development and Entrepreneurship, Child Development I & II, Foods and Nutrition I, Hospitality and Tourism Management I & II, Human Development, International Foods, Interior Design, and ProStart 1 & 2.
