Marriot Bar-Lev is head of The Academy of the Fox Cities, an international Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade school, the first primary through high school in the U.S.A. to be accredited for University of Cambridge International Examinations, U.K.  Jody is also vice president of the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB), and has assisted in the rescue and relocation of herds of wild mustangs that would have otherwise gone to slaughter. 

Born in San Diego, Jody grew up in the U.K. and U.S.A., and has worked extensively in both the fields of education and animal welfare.  Her graduate work, through the Institute of Education, University of London, is in the area of education research.

Ms. Marriott Bar-Lev will talk about current work with Lakota educators to create a Lakota school incorporating the Cambridge curriculum that will combine international standard academics and the Lakota culture and will serve the residents of Pine Ridge and Cheyenne River Reservations in South Dakota.  The rescued wild mustangs, now relocated to the ISPMB sanctuary in South Dakota, are an integral part of this program.
