Teacher Open House

Teacher Open House

Did you know that Professor Qwbli's was founded and is run by a public school teacher? It's true! Professor Qwbli's was created to help develop tomorrow's great thinkers, problem-solvers, innovators and leaders by harnessing the power of play to develop, strengthen and build students' cognitive abilities.

Obviously, that is not accomplished by our efforts alone! Teachers play a primary role in our play-based mission! Because of that, Professor Qwbli's was designed to be a resource for teachers of all grade levels. As such, we have many things to offer teachers. From field trips, to assemblies, to classroom visits, to screen-free games and game bundles - even a game rental program, we have it all. Most importantly, we offer effective hands-on professional development workshops to show teachers how to use and inspire them to use play in their classroom in a way that meets their curricular needs and requirements.

Round up all your colleagues and educator friends and come learn more about how we can help you energize your classroom and support your efforts to create tomorrow's great thinkers, problem-solvers, innovators and leaders.

We will have discounts, give-a-ways and yummy food - because we know how much teachers love FREE food! Founded by a teacher, remember?
