Yes, it will (assuming you didn't pay into Social Security while working for the school system); however, it is a different provision called the Windfall Elimination Provision that applies to filing for Social Security benefits on your own work history rather than filing for spousal benefits. Here's the info:

Then I don't understand why you think it would or could have an effect on your pension. As long as you paid into Social Security then your work there is counted the same as working for any private sector employer. You wouldn't be penalized simply by virtue of having a pension.
