You know you're married to a teacher when you start speaking in acronyms just like her/him.

Example: "She's going to be late because she's logged on to TPTS to find D5 stuff for her C-A-F-E board to prepare her student's for the FCAT and many of them are on PMPS's and IEP's. Due to the NCLB it's important that her ESOL, SP/LG, GT and LD students make significant learning gains." said a teacher spouse.

I'm not sure why education has become a bunch of acronyms but it's hard to keep up! LOL/TFIG!

Also- you know you're married to a teacher when you help in her classroom for 7 hours putting everything up on the walls that she was required to take down at the end of the year (yes- this is what we did yesterday!).
