Biography:

Welcome to the Loving Savior Lutheran School website! I am Mrs. Valorie Wend, the Principal for the 2018-2019 school year. I taught 6-8th grade Language Arts and Literature for eight years, and this is my ninth year as Principal of Loving Savior. I have a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Administrative Credential, a Master’s degree in Organizational Management, a B.A. degree in Criminal Justice and Procedural Law, and a California Single Subject teaching credential in English. I am delighted to be able to share our campus, curriculum, and extra-curricular activities offered this year.

I am a sports enthusiast.  I have been a devoted Dallas Cowboy fan all of my life.  In addition, I am a Red Sox and Boston Celtics fan as well.  My father played AAA ball for the Boston Red Sox, so I have a personal allegiance.  You will often see me talking with the kids about the football season and sports in general.  I have been married for the past 27 years to my best friend, Chris, who is an attorney.  We have a 25-year-old son, who graduated from Loving Savior, who is now a fourth-year medical student.
