Briana Zavadil White is the school and teacher program coordinator at the National Portrait Gallery. Briana began her career with NPG in 2002, while still in graduate school, by facilitating outreach programs in schools and senior centers and leading interactive tours for the Gallery’s traveling exhibitions. At the National Portrait Gallery, her work has evolved to include creating and managing in-Gallery school programs, designing and facilitating teacher workshops (both inside and outside the museum), developing teacher resource guides, and collaborating with other Smithsonian units.
In 1997, Briana earned her undergraduate degree in psychology, with a minor in art history, from the University of Virginia. She then received her master of arts in teaching with a concentration in museum education from the Museum Education Program at George Washington University in 2003.
