Justin Hibbard

K-12 Regional Director

Before joining Instructure, Justin Hibbard worked in Maryland private schools for over ten years.  The first five years, he taught upper level Spanish and piloted the school’s first learning management system.  He became so excited about how technology could propel education that for the next five years he joined a large Baltimore area private school as the Educational Technology Specialist.  Because of his understanding of school systems and teacher needs, he consulted with area schools looking for technology integrations and solutions.  

Having used and administered many learning management systems, Justin knows first-hand that Canvas offers better features and outperforms competitors in uptime and reliability.  He also understands the relationships between LMS, SIS, and other databases and school systems.  “The best part of working for Canvas,” Justin explains, “is hearing how excited teachers and students get about Canvas.  Nothing gives me more job satisfaction than to know I offer a product that people love.”

Justin earned his B.A. at Houghton College, which included a writing program at Harvard University and a Spanish fluency program at the Center for Cross Cultural Studies in Sevilla, Spain.  Beyond Canvas, Justin loves to teach his kids piano and guitar.  He also spends a lot of his free time doing work for faith-based organizations and designing websites. For adventure, Justin enjoys skiing and cycling.
