About Albert Puskaric

Retired from teaching, Alberto has placed his focus on expressing himself through his passion for art. He is currently featuring his color pencil works from Seven Springs Mountain Resort and Hidden Valley in Western Pennsylvania. His recent trips to the slopes have sparked a wealth of situational portraits and scenes from the beautiful Laurel Highlands. He is also available for custom work in color pencils and oils by commission. Use the Galleries button to easily search for artworks sorted by genre.

During his teaching career he taught high school classes in robotics, engineering, drafting, art and technical writing. He also taught college level courses for educators seeking to achieve education’s highest certification: National Board Certification.

National Board Certification is the highest nationally recognized certificate that an educator can achieve. Alberto is currently the only educator in the state of Pennsylvania to achieve National Board Certification in engineering and also holds 4 other degrees.

He also received an international gold medal in Casablanca Morocco for his art and created custom pieces for the King, Queen and Prince of Morocco.

In his long-standing relationship with NASA, he trained at the University of Alabama Space and Rocket Center and at one time was in line for a mission to the MIR Space Station until that mission was scrubbed due to the changing political climate with Russia. He was a recipient of the NEWMAST Award - NASA’s highest civilian honor. He was the Guest Speaker for the Pre-Launch Conference at Kennedy Space Center for the Hubble Repair Mission. He worked with WQED and PBS on the award winning 9-part series “Space Age” narrated by Patrick Stewart. He worked with NASA on the Mars Settlement Project and in the Space Seeds programs. He helped to design 2 “Getaway Special” science experiments for the Space Shuttle. He represented NASA as a consultant to the Carnegie Science Center advisory board and participated in the groundbreaking ceremonies as well as hosted the American/Russian Chautauqua Conferences for NASA held at the University of Pittsburgh that same year.

He is a recipient of 7 Distinguished Achievement Awards, 3 Governor’s Energy Awards, the National RENEW America Award (which was received on Capitol Hill from Christopher Reeves), named a Teacher of Excellence by the Teacher Excellence Foundation, named a Teacher of Distinction by the Technology Excellence Foundation, a winner of the “Thanks to Teachers Award” sponsored by Apple Computers, and KDKA TV, and won the National Energy Education Development award. Alberto was acknowledged by a three-page article and photograph in “Teacher Magazine” for his innovative techniques and has been nominated for Disney’s Teacher of the Year, Radio Shack’s Teacher Excellence award, and Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year.

In 2013 Alberto was inducted into McKeesport School District's Hall of Fame which included a photo and plaque in the main foyer of his high school.

Alberto holds a degree in art from the University of Edinboro and has used his artistic abilities throughout his career. Now retired, he has devoted all of his time to his passion for art…. Enjoy!
