Helping upper elementary teachers save time and engage students with hands-on, SOL-aligned curriculum and resources.

Welcome to Vestal’s 21st Century Classroom

I’m Meghan Vestal, a former Virginia teacher and current curriculum developer. I began Vestal’s 21st Century Classroom in 2015 with a cheap laptop and a mission to help give upper elementary teachers more of their personal time back. Since then, we’ve grown to help thousands of teachers around the world with engaging curriculum and teaching resources.

But, no matter how much we’ve grown, my favorite thing remains helping upper elementary teachers in Virginia. As a former Virginia teacher, I know how difficult it is to find high-quality resources aligned to the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs). My goal is for you to leave the classroom on time, knowing you have engaging, SOL-aligned prepared for your students the next day.
