Alex Bybee leads Teach Plus' policy work in Nevada. Alex joined Teach Plus in 2018 from The Public Education Foundation in Clark County, where he served as Senior Director of Development and Community Relations and worked closely with the CEO to lead the Foundation's annual fundraising events, major donor portfolio and strategic community partnerships. Previously, Alex managed and led the strategy for the Save Our Schools campaign, which brought together a broad-based coalition that passed a ballot initiative (WC-1, 2016) that provides a new and permanent funding stream for the construction and repair of Washoe County schools.
Alex is passionate about youth leadership, volunteering as a mentor and counselor for the Nevada Youth Legislature, Nevada Association of Student Councils, and the American Legion Nevada Boys State—all programs for which he is an alum. He currently serves on the boards of The Nevada Youth Legislature Foundation and the Las Vegas Chapter of the Human Rights Campaign and the advisory boards of The Public Education Foundation, PublicServiceNV, and Nevada's Big Give. Alex graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a BA in political science. He is a big fan of Hamilton—the Founding Father and the musical—and loves to read books and discuss big ideas. A practical native of Nevada, Alex lives in Las Vegas with his partner and their rescue dog named Kristoff.
