Welcome to the Apparel Production and Fashion Merchandising program at Weaver Academy! My name is Amanda Bergsma and I currently teach Fashion Merchandising and Apparel I. I am an Appalachian State University graduate (Go Neers!) and am currently working on my master's degree at Liberty University.
This is my fourth-year teaching, first year here at Weaver. Besides Fashion Merchandising and Apparel, I also have experience in teaching Child Development, Foods and Nutrition and Interior Design. Teaching Family and Consumer Sciences is most definitely my passion. I love teaching students life skills that will help them be successful in life and/or their careers.
All students who enter into my room know that they are loved, respected, and capable. I challenge students to apply what is being taught in class and apply it to their individual interests and real life scenarios.
