Timothy J. Allen, M.A.

Tim Allen’s career has come full circle from being a high school administrator, to a substance abuse and psychiatric hospital administrator, and back as executive director of the Carlston Family Foundation, a nonprofit committed to recognize and reward outstanding teachers in California public high schools. The Foundation selects five teachers annually who are each awarded $20,000, nominated by former students who believe their teachers had a significant personal and academic impact on their lives. As high school administrator, Tim created one of the first Student Assistance Programs in the United States, which became the model for over 200 high school substance abuse prevention, education and training programs throughout the United States. Tim is the co-author of Powerful Parents…Competent Kids and in his currently capacity is working closely with several California State University Schools of Education to impact teacher preparation programs and, most recently, is supervising secondary education student teachers.
