I would like to share a question bank with another teacher, but I am not sure if this is possible. Does anyone have any insight?
We used to create a master ("Master Spanish 1B" or whatever the course is) and all pull from it. The master course could be stripped down and teachers can personalize it once they've imported the question bank, quiz or whatever.
To do this, you have to give all of the instructors access, of course. Alternately, you can make everyone designers of everyone else's courses and just freely share things, which is what we do now.
To import someone else's material, click on settings, import content into this course, copy a Canvas course, then select the course you want to copy material from. Be sure to check the "select specific content" box, or you'll import the ENTIRE course. Click the import button. You then have to click on "select content" and navigate to what you want to import. Once you've selected the quiz bank, it will import, which only takes a minute or less, generally.
There are a few ways to do this, but one way is to make a quiz with all of the questions in the bank. Then you can export the quiz to a QTI file and the other instructor can import it:
How do I export quiz content from my course?
How do I import quizzes from QTI packages?
Of course, if you want to share your entire course, then you can export and import the whole course:
How do I export a Canvas course?
How do I import a Canvas course export package?
I hope that helps, Ms. Hardin!
To piggy-back what Dallas mentioned, you can also share the quiz with all of the questions to Commons for your institution. Read how to do this here:

This has worked well for us this year.
This is what I am looking for! Thanks!
Mary Hardin, glad to know that what works for us will work for you!
