at . Comments

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!

Do you have Bryn Harold? Well then take off your shoes and chase her down, because I need that opera as a front of book idea. They're doing Boris Godunov this spring. Who doesn't love Tsars and Cossacks?
