Chuck and Nate may be paying a lot more attention in class come Spring.

Sources confirm to Entertainment Weekly that Laura Breckenridge (Related) is joining the Gossip Girl cast as Rachel Carr, a young, idealistic and fresh-faced new English teacher who arrives at their posh prep school, Constance Billard.

She's an extremely young teacher, but a teacher all the same.

At 25, Breckenridge - who is booked for a minimum of three Gossip Girl episodes - is only a few years older than Blake Lively and Leighton Meester.

In fact, Gossip Girl producers are already acknowledging that fact right at the start, when Miss Carr gets mistaken for a student on her very first day.

No word on potential love interests, but we do know the first student she butts heads with: Blair Waldorf. The two don't exactly hit it off. Shocker!

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
