Welcome to Mr. Bingaman’s page!
This is my third year at Clearfield Area Elementary School. Before coming to Clearfield, I worked with students in both teaching and counseling roles for grade levels ranging from Kindergarten to the first year of college. I obtained an undergraduate degree in Secondary English Education and a Masters Degree in School Counseling from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. I currently hold a certification in Pre K-12 Counseling.
I am originally from Reading, PA, but for about a decade had counted Pittsburgh as my second home. After living in eastern and western PA, I have come to settle here in Clearfield and look forward to enjoying the scenic aspects and rustic culture of Clearfield County. Like any reasonable Pennsylvanian, I enjoy a quality hoagie and a Steelers' victory as well as spending time with family, friends, and acquaintances.
The school counseling office is a safe place where students can come to work out personal or peer issues. I have many useful resources that can help students make appropriate choices, set goals, and overcome challenges.
