Megan's New Teacher is the twelfth episode of the third season of Drake & Josh.


Josh gets a student-teaching job in Megan's classroom, where Drake discovers an amazing young drummer. When the students' rebel against Josh's overworking them, Drake helps Megan to discredit their brother, in the hope of acquiring the drummer for his band.


In the opening comments, Drake and Josh talk about different teachers.

After being accepted into the T.T.T., a student-teaching group, Josh becomes Megan's class teacher for a week, and he 'challenges' the students with college-level chemistry, even failing them on pop quizzes they never studied for. Because of this, Megan becomes disliked by her classmates.

Drake finds Neil with a talent to play drums and wants him to play for the band on Friday after his drummer quit, but he is not allowed to play after failing one of Josh's pop quizzes. Drake and Megan hatch a plan to fire Josh from the student-teaching group. Both of their plans work, and Josh is fired from the group. The students admit that they like Josh as a person but hate him as a teacher.

During the end credits, Drake's drummer was playing the drums which causes him to get angry when he punches a hole in the wall.

  • Audrey and Walter do not appear in this episode.
  • Megan asks Josh to give her 'Pentendo GS', which is a parody of Nintendo DS, even though it actually resembles a Game Boy Advance SP.
  • Megan and Drake are on the same side for the third time in the series.
  • This is the second episode where kids hate Josh. The first was Number 1 Fan.
  • In one scene where Drake, Josh, and Megan are at the Premiere, Drake is wearing an England Rugby Jersey with the O2 logo on the front.
  • This is the only episode of the series where Josh takes on an antagonistic side and also torments Megan, though it's inadvertent. This can be considered the one episode where their roles are switched.
    • This is also could likely be Josh's revenge for all the pranks that Megan plays on him and Drake and getting away with it.
  • This was the first episode to air in 2006.
  • Starting on December 18, 2014. This is the last episode to be airing on Nickelodeon. This episode is not available on Paramount+ due to licensing issues with material used in the episode.


  • In the scene where Drake and Megan argue with Josh and Megan tells Drake to get his car keys, it's afternoon, but in the next scene where it shows the outside of the school, and where they're at school setting up pranks for Josh just to get rid of him forever, it's night.
    • Perhaps they stopped and got some food first before going to the school and waited until a better time of not getting caught sneaking in.
  • Josh obviously violated the school rules when he challenged the students with their academics. In reality, the kids, their parents, and Mrs. Hunter could've report him for his behavior.
  • In real life, Drake and Megan would be arrested for breaking and entering since they snuck into the school late at night.
  • When Josh was showing the students his last part of his lecture, he pours a chemical into the jar of sodium sulfide. However, as soon as he finishes pouring the chemical, in the next shot of Josh and Miss Hunter, there's nothing in the jar.
    • Also in that same scene, when Josh finishes pouring the liquid, his hands move to make it look like he is closing the bottle. But in the next shot, his hands are still above the jar.
  • Megan and all her friends were getting fed up with Josh telling them what to do and bossing them around too much and finally did something getting him fired. The only reason they got rid of him is because they hate him, along with Miss Hunter. They need to be more specific with him saying that they hate him as a teacher and all of a sudden, they get him a trophy that obviously says he's their favorite teacher.
    • Given that they hate him as a teacher, but like him as a friend, It’s likely that they just wanted to make amends with Josh.
  • There should've been security that Megan would've had to pass before entering the school.
  • It is unknown how the video of the clowns hitting each other with chickens ended up showing on the television monitor, as Drake and Megan do not do anything that could be construed as causing this to happen when they break into the school.
    • It is possible Megan replaced the original home video before leaving the school off-screen.
  • In the scene where Drake and Josh are talking about The Premiere's third anniversary party in their room, Josh zips up his jacket twice.
