Dian Elenor Daniels (née Johnson) was born on May 15th, 1946 in Sacramento, California to proud parents Wilbert E. Johnson and Retha L. Mitchell. As a native Sacramento resident for her entire life, Dian grew up in Midtown & Oak Park, and then later her family moved to Land Park where she had the good fortune of ending up as a next-door neighbor to Dr. Wilson C. Riles. Dian graduated from McClatchy High School, and went on to attend college locally. Dian was quite proud of her education, having graduated from Sac State, effectively earning her Master's Degree, and teaching credential (among many other highly specialized teaching certifications), which would reveal a wealth of opportunities for her. From there, she went on to serve her community, by teaching elementary school at numerous campuses throughout the Sacramento City Unified School District for over thirty years, finally settling at Maple Elementary School, where she discovered she enjoyed teaching Kindergarten because she felt that the impact she was making on students who were just beginning their educational careers was a highly beneficial one. Often, when parents would have the privilege of observing her while she was teaching, they would comment on how actively engaged her students were, and why anyone would want to teach at the kindergarten level, and she would always say, "Students at this age are fearless, because they have not yet learned what it is to fail, and they have not yet learned to be mean to their peers. These students are still actually quite sweet at this age, and they genuinely care about their classmates enough to help each other in areas where one may fall short of the others. If I can continue to help shape them early on, maybe whatever they have learned in my time with them will encourage them to be better students in the future..." After retiring in 2004, Dian continued to serve her community by attending city council meetings, SCUSD school board meetings, being a member of the Black Parallel School Board, acting as a champion for the preservation of public education, remaining active in those professional organizations to which she belonged, serving as a mentor to new and inexperienced teachers as a part of the Project Pipeline program, and, of course, volunteering to teach illiterate adults how to read as a part of the adult literacy program offered by the Sacramento Public Library. In her home life Dian was an avid fitness walker, a loving pet owner, a kind neighbor, an Olympic-caliber shopper, a chocolate connoisseur and a fashion maven. She also continued to be a student, herself, by taking a host of different courses via The Learning Exchange, the UC Davis Extension program, and eventually returning to Sacramento City College to learn about new technologies, innovations, and social media. Dian was even preparing herself for a new career in Real Estate. Sadly, Dian passed away on February 26th, 2014 after her health took a turn for the worst. Most regrettably, having an obituary published in the local newspaper on Dian's behalf was overlooked at the time of her passing, but affords the family an opportunity to share in remembering who Dian Elenor Daniels (née Johnson) was, and what she, as well as her life, was about. Dian is survived by her loving husband, Clyde Daniels; her mother [now deceased]; her brother, Edward V. Johnson; her children, Azuré Daniels-Forslin and Christopher D. Daniels, as well as numerous cousins, former-students, friends and professional colleagues. + Teachers touch thousands of lives throughout their careers, and for this reaason being an educator is considered to be quite a noble profession. Steve Nelson of the Huffington Post said it best when he lauded the expertise of a [then] recently deceased colleague of his by saying: "Yes, you have taught long enough to visit Pluto and return, yet you have stayed in one place. Some people travel to far galaxies and other people prepare them for the trip. For 35 years you have been Calhoun's NASA. You have inspired and cajoled, taught and hugged. You have given your hundreds of kids a confident and unconditionally affirming start and sewn their flight jackets with threads of wisdom and joy. You've laughed at their 5-year old jokes and been gob-smacked by their insights. You've wiped their noses (and behinds) and put smiles back on their faces just when they needed it. And because of you, 525 kids believed they could travel to the stars or accomplish anything they wished. And they have. And they will. There can be no life achievement greater than to have affected the lives of 525 humans in a profound and irreversible way. In any other context this statement might be trite, but in your case it is irrefutably true: You have changed the world for the better."
