About Ms. Judi
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 26th year of teaching. I am blessed to be a part of the LPS family.
My daughter, Merrill, is a junior at Mississippi State University. She is majoring in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing. 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 freshman at Northwest Mississippi Community College. William will be playing football for the Rangers! He loves cooking, fishing, and video and music production.
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!
Author of the Month: Dr. Seuss
Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts. At the time, his family lived on Howard Street in Springfield’s South End. The family soon moved to Fairfield Street. The Geisel home was not far from Mulberry Street, the subject of his first children’s book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, published in 1937.
Writing with the pen name Dr. Seuss, Ted published over 40 children’s books and helped produce a number of film and television programs. His most celebrated books include The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, One fish two fish red fish blue fish, Horton Hatches the Egg, Horton Hears a Who!, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!. Dr. Seuss’s honors include two Academy Awards, two Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal, and the Pulitzer Prize.
In 1986, Dr. Seuss visited Springfield. He greeted fans on Mulberry Street, not far from his Fairfield Street home. It was his last visit. Theodor Geisel passed away at the age of 87 on September 24, 1991, in La Jolla, California.
Sam-I-Am offers an unnamed character a plate of green eggs and ham. He refuses, repeating, “I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-Am.” while Sam persistently follows him, asking him to eat them in eight locations (House, box, car, tree, train, dark, rain, boat) and with three animals (Mouse, fox, goat). Finally, the character accepts the offer and samples the green eggs and ham, happily declaring that he likes them and ends the story, saying, "I do so like green eggs and ham. Thank you. Thank you, Sam-I-Am."
