Mr. Herbert, as he is affectionately known to the children, came to Baldwin Academy in 2007 and has been keeping pace with the busy childcare industry ever since. A native of Colombia, Mr. Herbert credits his family for his affinity for education. Raised amongst professors, deans and intellectual individuals, he inherited a passion for academics. “I find myself at peace while working on new projects that constructively impact the community”, he states.

As President, and member of the board of a prestigious University in his native country, he collaborates jointly with his board in guiding the academic activities of college students. Through this experience he observes a very clear correlation between a solid early education, good habit formation and the professional performance of the individual.

He greatly values qualities such as high ethical standards, a great sense of responsibility and an excellent use of common sense. As a family man, Mr. Herbert enjoys spending evenings around the dinner table with his two sons, Sebastian and Gabriel, and close friends.

On the weekend he likes to spend time working in his farm, caring for his many animals, and taking a stroll around his orchard.
