Dr. Eric Ruiz Bybee is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Teacher Education in the David O. McKay School of Education at BYU. He teaches courses in multicultural education.

Dr. Bybee’s research interests include the social and cultural foundations of education; Latina/o/x education; teacher education; and identity, agency, and social movements in education and stem from his experiences as a former New York City public school teacher. Within teacher education, he has focused his research on exploring the ways that teachers are prepared with necessary cultural knowledge to meet the needs of students from historically marginalized populations. More recently, he has also explored the role of teacher education in the identity productions of Latina/o preservice teachers from various racial, class, linguistic, and immigration backgrounds. He is particularly interested in Latina/o racial identity and whiteness, and situates his ethnographic work within the broader cultural history of Latina/o schooling in the United States.
