Linda Gilbert


Hello and Welcome!

My name is Linda Gilbert.  It is my honour to serve you as York Region District School Board Trustee for Newmarket.  

I am passionate about learning and making a difference for our kids.

I have a B.S. Business and M.B.A. in Organizational Behaviour and over 25 years of volunteer and business experience.

Before becoming a trustee, I served four years on the YRDSB Parent, Family and Community Engagement Advisory Committee (PEAC). I have served 13 years on YRDSB School Councils, as a parent.

I am a big supporter of well-being. I published a Health & Wellness Magazine for seven years, with a focus on “living a whole, balanced life.” I am also a yoga teacher and mindfulness practitioner.

The role of a trustee comes with many important responsibilities. As a trustee, it is my role to communicate with members of the public and advocate for quality public education. The Board of Trustees is also responsible for making decisions about policies, budget and setting priorities for the Board through the Multi-Year Strategic Plan. I also serve on a number of Board committees. 

We welcome feedback from the families and the communities we serve. I encourage you to regularly check the YRDSB website for news, updates and resources from the Board, including the Message from the Board Chair. You can also follow @YRDSB on Twitter for further updates.
