Principal

Prov. 3: 3-6

“Let love and faithfulness never leave you…Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and he will make your paths straight.”

Amy Greener

I started my teaching career at Immanuel Lutheran School and Church upon graduating from Concordia University, Ann Arbor, Mi. After four years in Bay City, I received a call to Suburban Bethlehem. I now am starting my 27th year at Suburban Bethlehem. During this time, I earned my master’s in education through Ball State University. In 2018, I was asked to become interim principal. I went back to school and received my Building Administrator’s license through Indiana Wesleyan University. Beyond school, I spend my time with my very supportive husband, Rich Greener, my stepdaughter, Olivia, our two dogs, Dash and Diesel and several outside barn cats. Suburban Bethlehem is my home, and I am thankful for the members of my church family, the talented staff that I have the privilege to work with each day, and the kids and families of this place.
