BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — JULIA CHAMBERLAIN-HANSCHELL — Naked, anyone who has tuned into Mixed 96.1 is probably familiar with a weekly morning segment by Julia Chamberlain-Hanschell. Always talking all excited about education and child development. Well she does state key components and has established a very forwarded and advanced private school. Julia herself is no more than a money hoard who would risk abandoning her own children for selfish motivations.
Julia was once married to a Barbadian business man and had several children with this man. He was ever so kind as to let her use his office to offer after-school lessons. This seemingly sound marriage came to an abrupt end. Julia then started a partnership with the granddaughter of a prominent Caribbean businessman. They started a school together one the other ladies property. Julia acted/currently acts as principal. With her partner resigning from vice principal. Well she claimed she resigned for family issues, it is quite obvious Julia is a very stubborn, selfish lady and there was a riff in communication due to Julia’s behaviour.
Julia saw the school concept was doing well, and went ahead to expand the school w/out consulting her partner. In the constructions period, Julia got a quote from a solar panelist and even had him order solar panels out of pocket. She then turned around and hired a cheaper company using the panels the other company paid for neglecting to pay them. Ever year she raises the fees and makes a steady profit, enough to renovate her house and make multiple trips overseas annually during the school year.
This woman’s behaviour could ruin a very innovative school. She even dabbled with resigning from the principal. She is so corrupt she offers subsidized fees. Dropping thousands of the school bill if you pay in cash and in full, a bill which can run about US12,500 for a yr. She even has a disgusting habit of smoking on school premises even though she placed no smoking signs around the school. Her behaviour caused her own daughter to resign from the school and move in with her father.
She is doesn’t pay her teachers over the holidays unless they come in and teach vacation school. She would scream in staff meetings and won’t allow others to speak. She is known to favourite certain families. Having denied a child entry from the school for supposed drug use but allowing another child entry with that same issues as his father is the CEO of a company. She even has children blocked from moodle and exam results for unpaid school fees. This is fishy because exam cost paid upfront before a child can sit an exam.
Be careful with this snake, she has a way with words but she is truly cold-hearted and is only in if for money. She would play nice but turn as soon as you’re seen as a liability. She also has racist/socialist undertones. It was rumoured certain white families didn’t pay school fees. Julia has founded a great school and perhaps did have a good vision. But she has a no visor between her personal and opinion and professionalism. All I’m saying is be aware of who you give your money to. Everything that shines isn’t gold. Anonymous
