Hey fish fam, I have an SO who is a special education teacher trying to get out of the classroom but not having any luck. I really want to help her out because I know that she loves teaching, but it is making her miserable. Anyone know of specific consulting firms or Ed tech companies that are hiring educators? Bonus points if you know if any specific job openings that you could point me to. Thanks in advance for the help! Deloitte EY Pearson Mcgraw-Hill Education
Anyone in this bowl have experience with a Border Collie or a herding breed? My fiancé is obsessed with them after watching “The Pack” but I also know they are incredibly high energy. We have a 20 pound mystery breed dog that we run 4 miles with daily. Is this enough exercise for the breed or is he asking for trouble? I am not the most athletic so anything over what I’m doing now is not okay!

I’m currently working as a fraud specialist for a big delivery gig company. I am a “contractor”
For 6 months & was informed back in the interview they can extend it to up to 2 years if not hired on as a full time employee in that time frame. I was wondering if anyone had any advice to try to become a full time employee by the end of contract? I’m 3 months in and I’d say I’m doing pretty well there. I like what I do, my boss, my team. It’s a dream and I wanna be able to stay long haul.

Anyone done a feature for Vanguard Law or similar? How did that work out for you? Did your outside counsel receive a shake down to sponsor the piece?
I have been stiff arming Vanguard for years but am curious if there’s any actual benefit. Or at least funny stories.

Can anybody at Hinton Andrew’s explain the special bonuses just announced? The fiscal year end in March seems to make this weird. Are you actually getting “new” special bonuses or just delayed special bonuses from year end 2021?
Ugh - mom help needed. I flipped out on the daycare director this morning. I have three kids in this daycare and two of them have field trips to the pumpkin patch planned for next week. Found out this morning that they are not requiring masks and the busses to the pumpkin patch will be filled to capacity with the kids plus adult chaperones.
