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?

@scientistrunner -- unfortunately, this is not something that should be shared publically, as the solution can be used for students to observe other students. That would possibly lead to an academic integrity issue.
I need the workaround for me to be both a teacher in canvas and an observer for my son. I do not have the observing button!
Can you please send me the directions also? I don't want to have two Canvas accounts. Thank you!

Please send me the hidden work around as well. I am our district's LMS admin and have come across this numerous times! ....
actually i was on hold from Canvas support when I came across this article but as I was typing this they came back on with the hidden super secret location.
