Ramona Maile Cutri received her Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles and is an associate professor of multicultural education in the department of Teacher Education at Brigham Young University. Dr. Cutri's passion for the areas of multicultural and bilingual education stems from her own experiences as a child of mixed ethnicities who grew up in poverty.

Dr. Cutri teaches courses in multicultural education.

Dr. Cutris research explores how to help engage pre-service teachers intellectually and emotionally in the dispositional and pedagogical issues related to critical multicultural education. She approaches this overarching topic from different perspectives including the integration of technology into teaching, how preservice teachers identify social privileges; the emotional work involved in multicultural teacher education; and unpacking cross-class identities.

Dr. Cutris current work contributes a criticality to research on eLearning and highlights the tensions between the culture of academia and the potential and demands of online teaching. Some of Dr. Cutris recent publications include:
