I need to change my status from teacher to student so the course I am working with can switch me to teacher. How can I do this?
Hi Joy Houser , and Welcome to the Canvas Community!
Even if that permission to change your role in a classroom has been enabled at your school, I would not suggest changing your role to student in a course; because, then as a student, you will not have the permission to change yourself back to Teacher. This means you would have to ask your Canvas Admin/support department to return you to your original status.
Canvas anticipated this, and provided "Student View". From Home page or Settings click "Student View" on the right. When you are all done having fun, click "Leave Student View" on the bottom right.

If you are the teacher in a course you can change your status by clicking on the people button and then the three dots next to the name on the right hand side. You will see a change role option there and you can then select student.
