What is Canvas?

Canvas is a learning management interface for students and teachers to access course content, kind of similar to Blackboard except way more customizable and user friendly. All of the content for my courses are available in Canvas. You can reach Canvas by visiting one of the link buttons below and login with your registered email address and password. I strive for full transparency and my courses are always available for authorized users to view.  Students will use the MPS Canvas Login button.  Parents and Guardians will use the Non-District Canvas Login button.

Student Username: Your Mesa Public Schools email


Password: Your normal student login 

  • PASSWORD = first initial (Capital) + last initial (lowercase) + student's six digit ID #

(Thomas A. Edison’s might be Te123456)


⚠ Parents> if your child "forgot" their username or password and/or you want to check up on them, please contact me via the email link on my main page and I'll send it to you.  You can also contact the front office and they can access it for you as well. 


Once you're logged in to Canvas, click on the desired class you want to view. 

  • The Modules link in the left hand column will take you to the course content. 
  • The Grades link in the left hand column will take you to your child's grade in the class.  Grades will also show you what's missing etc.
