Hello, Oklahoma Green Schools Family! I am thrilled to be on this journey with you all as the Green Schools Program continues to create a sustainable minded network of young people who have a passion for protecting the future of our environment. I am joining the Green Schools team as the new Communications Director. I hope to inspire you through my monthly blogs to get out and do your part to make an environmental difference.

I’m going to focus this first blog on introducing myself, so bear with me as I ramble on about who I am, and why you should possibly care for the next few paragraphs!

I will start with my name because I guess that’s somewhat important for getting to know someone ha ha… which is Shavara Johnson. I have been married for almost 3 years, I have a 1 and ½ year old son and a baby girl due in March of this year. I come to the Oklahoma Green Schools Program after a brand-new remote position was created, which worked with my desire to be a more hands on mother to my growing family. My days are spent chasing after my very energetic toddler and doing my best to bring environmental awareness in a fun an interesting way to you all.

Prior to my position with the Oklahoma Green Schools Program I was the Recycle Facilitator for Keep Oklahoma Beautiful, where I was first exposed to the importance of our environmental impact. I’ve gained so much knowledge about our personal roles in the health of our environment through my position, and blogging helps me to share that knowledge with an audience that is as invested as I am.

I hope that you all will take this journey with me through this monthly blog, where I promise to provide you with informative topics, and solutions to everyday environmental choices that we can make. Look for me every second Monday in the Month for the latest; #MakeitGreenMondays.


OK Green Schools very own,


Shavara J.
