I am a teacher, have a Canvas account and use it for the courses I teach. My son's elementary school teacher is starting to use Canvas in her classroom(in the same district/domain). My question is do I need a new account to be able to pair with my child and view his courses? Or can I somehow pair my existing teacher account?

Hi @MrsDuffyDATA -- Yes, you'd need to set up a separate Canvas Account using your personal email that you'd then use for your Observer role.
If you'd like to keep your teacher role separate from the observer role (yet not sign in and out), you may like Chrome profiles. Share Chrome with others - Computer - Google Chrome Help
