Sheldon Johnson

My wife, Sarah, and I have lived in the district over 25 years, and our daughters spent nine years in Ladue Schools. I am the Board of Education’s treasurer and serve on the following committees: Finance and Facilities, Property, Facilities Planning Board Advisory, Finance Board Advisory, High School Construction, and previously, the Superintendent Search Committee. I have an accounting degree from the University of Missouri.

Jeff Kopolow

My name is Jeff Kopolow, and I am pleased to be seeking the opportunity to continue to serve on the Ladue Schools Board.

A lifelong resident of St. Louis, I attended Clayton High School and Washington University, where I received my A.B. degree in 1966 and my M.A. in 1969. Subsequently, I have taken graduate courses and workshops at Washington University, the University of Missouri, and Webster University. I hold a Missouri Life Certification in Social Studies, grades 7- 12. I taught at West Ladue Junior High School and Ladue Horton Watkins High School from 1966 to 2005. I have held adjunct appointments with Washington University, the University of Missouri - St. Louis, and Columbia College.

Leslie Tolliver

A native St. Louisan and former business owner, I’ve practiced law for more than 17 years. I’ve specialized in family, criminal law and political consulting. These experiences have taught me the need for a holistic approach to ensuring young children become successful and independent adults. Education is at the center of the wheel of life, from which all other decisions are made.
