Wendy Alexander will suck you in, chew you up, and spit you back out again. She does not care who she destroys. Her victims include dedicated teachers, trusting parents, countless small business owners, friends who believed in her and supported her, and even her own children.
It is well known in the Tampa/ Lutz area, thanks to several recent news reports on Channel 8, that Wendy Alexander ran Hand in Hand Academy into the ground. As the reports have shown, she stole tuition money from trusting parents for the 2011-2012 school year, even though she knew her building was in foreclosure!
The reports also exposed how she had already accepted a principal job in Wisconsin, where she went to be near her (married) boyfriend. She was fired from that job when the school board found out about the situation she had fled from in Florida.
What the reports do not contain is the personal damage that Alexander has done and will continue to do if she isn't stopped. She is such a good liar that she can convince people that what she is saying is true, even when the evidence is against her. BEWARE! She promised each and every member of her staff that she PERSONALLY would see that they got the salary they were owed. These dedicated professionals came to work every day for free, many of them for the last 2 months of the school year. They did it because they trusted her when she promised she would pay them.She never did.
She hired roofers,cleaning professionals, lawn and pest companies, lawyers, fence companies,floor re-finishers,etc. and she never ever paid any of them! She would always find companies who would do the work upfront. When the bills came in, she would switch to another company to provide the service. Wendy Alexander does not understand that this is wrong.
Perhaps most upsetting: she owes thousands of dollars in back child support. That's right--she is a deadbeat mom.
What I don't understand is why she is not in jail! According to Channel 8, she is 3 million dollars in debt...yet there she is, living in Wisconsin, taking trips to Vegas,and basically just enjoying life!! Teachers do not make a lot of money anyway, and she owes them thousands and thousands of dollars!!The teacher she owes the most money to was supposed to be her best friend. That poor woman will probably never get over what Wendy Alexander did to her.
Finally--Here it is time to file taxes and again these wonderful dedicated employees are victims of Wendy Alexander. Because guess what!!?? Even though she took taxes out of their pay, much of it was not given to the IRS!! And she certainly isn't giving them W2 forms as required by law. She doesn't think the law applies to her!!!!
Please do not believe anything this woman tells you, whether it is on a personal or professional level. Basically, if she's speaking, she's lying. Don't join the large club of people who have found this out the hard way.
