The goal of the LPS library is for all students to develop a love of literature. Through the author studies, stations, and thematic studies, the Lewisburg Primary library will strive to reach students' goals in improving reading skills.
If I can ever be of assistance, please feel free to contact me.
Ms. Judi Stewart
My name is Judi Stewart. I graduated in 1994 from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Language Arts in 1996 from the University of Mississippi. I received my Library Media National Board Certification in 2018.
I taught second grade for sixteen years before making the move to the library. This is my 25th year of teaching. I am blessed to be a part of the LPS family.
My daughter, Merrill, is a sophomore at Mississippi State University. She is majoring in Geographical Informational Systems (fancy way of saying mapping). She enjoys taking care of the animals on my parent's farm, The Office, and hanging out with her friends. My son, William, is a senior at Lewisburg High School. He is a sports kid! He plays football, powerlifts, and throws shot put for the track team. He is a starting tackle and long snapper. He has signed to play football for Northwest Community College in the fall. Go Rangers!
I am a huge Mississippi State Bulldog fan! Nothing makes me happier than watching my Dawgs play. You will find me in the stands for each and every game cheering my team to victory. I also am a avid reader! I love to discover new authors to enjoy. Not only do I read books written for someone as old as I am, I love to discover new books for my LPS kiddos! My prayer is that they will develop a love of reading that will last a lifetime!
Mo Willems has a knack for both writing and drawing images. He started drawing cartoons when he was a child and never quit. He took a job out of college working for the Children's Television Workshop. This lead to a job on Sesame Street, where he won 6 Emmy awards. He also worked for many years as a stand up comedian and for Nickelodeon. He is best known for his children's books. In 2003, he released his first picture book, Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus. This book won him a Caldecott Honor. His Elephant and Piggie books are a huge hit with kids of all ages. The Easy Readers books won the Theodor Seuss Geisel Medals in 2008 and 2009. Two of his Knuffle Bunny books won Caldecott Honor books as well. Mo Willems is helping children cope with the uncertainty of the pandemic by creating a daily web show of Lunch Doodles with Mo.
