Chord Overstreet may not be returning to Glee‘s McKinley High next season, but he won’t be skipping class altogether.

The actor-musician will guest-star as a newbie Orson Elementary school teacher to young Brick Heck (Atticus Shaffer) on the Wednesday, Sept. 28 episode of ABC’s The Middle, has confirmed. Ralph Wilkerson (Overstreet) is enthusiastic, energetic but perhaps a little too forward-thinking for the elder Hecks’ tastes.

On Tuesday, The Middle star Patricia Heaton tweeted, “For all you @GLEEonFOX fans, @chordoverstreet is playing Brick’s 4th grade teacher this year on #TheMiddle!” Heaton plays Brick’s beleaguered mother Frankie.

Overstreet played the recurring character Sam “Trouty Mouth” Evans on Glee‘s second season. At Comic-Con, it was announced that he decided to leave the show to pursue other opportunities.

The Middle returns with a one-hour season premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8/7c.
