In December 2012, Camille Maben began serving in her current role as Executive Director of First 5 California. In that role, she is responsible for staffing the California Children and Families Commission, in addition to directing the work of the agency and its staff. Through her leadership, First 5 California is implementing several evidence-based and results-driven Signature Programs targeted to children, parents, and teachers that focus on quality.
Background: Delaine Eastin, former California State Superintendent of Public Instruction from 1995-2003, was the first and only woman in history to be elected to that position. She has a rich and extensive biography, with a life dedicated to the education of our youth, and through her work in the California State Assembly, advanced the values that all women share. Delaine was able to spend a few minutes with Ruth Rachel talking about Close the Gap, an organization dedicated to electing more women to the California State legislature. (For a more extensive biography of Delaine, please go to dw-mc.org)
