Are you an upper elementary or middle school teacher looking for resources and ideas that will save you time and get students excited about learning? Welcome to Vestal’s 21st Century Classroom!
I’m Meghan Vestal, a former upper elementary teacher with a passion for helping teachers and transforming classrooms with hands-on,
A few years ago, I was forced to leave the classroom after being diagnosed with a serious medical condition. At the time, I was completely bedridden and unable to walk. The one thing I could do was sit in bed and create digital resources for other teachers. At that time, I decided to make it my life’s purpose to help other teachers save time and find exciting ways to engage students.
Since then, Vestal’s 21st Century Classroom has grown to help thousands of upper elementary, middle school, and new teachers transform their classrooms with hands-on learning and digital resources that incorporate the twenty-first century skills students need to succeed! Teachers who have used my resources say they saved time planning and that their students were engaged.
In addition to developing upper elementary and middle school resources that I sell through my store, I also create curriculum, assessments, and textbooks for education companies such as Pearson, McGraw Hill, Interactive Achievement, and Amco. In 2020, I published my first nonfiction children’s book, Geology for Kids: A Junior Scientist’s Guide to Rocks, Minerals, and the Earth Beneath Our Feet. My second children’s book is scheduled to be released in 2021. One of my proudest moments as an educator was when curriculum I created was recognized by the U.S. Congress and First Lady Michelle Obama!
