  • Mr. Bingman believes that for optimum learning, the classroom
    environment must be positive, enjoyable, supportive, nurturing,
    intellectually challenging, and also academically and personally
    rewarding. Students should look forward to coming to class as they know
    they are going to have some fun while learning complicated concepts and
    principles.
  • Mr. Bingman believes that the role of the successful teacher is to
    take the standards and use his/her experience, creativity, imagination,
    and facilitator skills to provide a learner-centered classroom to bring
    the standards “alive” for the students to experience, understand, and
    integrate into their lives.
