Mrs. Bingaman grew up in St. Charles, Missouri and is thrilled to be part of the Peoria Notre Dame faculty and staff! Mrs. Bingaman became a science teacher because of her love of all the beautiful things in nature that God has created. She wanted to share the joy and responsibility as caretakers of the planet with students. She has enjoyed getting to know the kind and considerate staff at PND and witnessing Christians who “walk the walk each and every day.” Outside of the classroom, Mrs. Bingaman enjoys traveling with family and friends, collecting sea shells, hiking in the woods with her husband and dog, bike riding, weight lifting, playing tennis, running, and reading books. A fun fact about Mrs. Bingaman: she was ranked 9th in the U.S. for girls under 18 table tennis when she was 14-years-old!
