Teacher roster, student artifacts, showcases, feedback, and presentations

Teachers are those who have been invited to the Backpack teacher group created during setup. In Backpack, teachers manage rosters, view student artifacts, and collaborate with students on showcases. If a student needs help, teachers can also associate artifacts to a skill for students.

When a teacher logs in, their view is different than the Admin and Student views. Teachers see the following cards:

Rosters

Showcase Feedback Requests, if a student has requested feedback

Custom, if created for the teacher role
