Mr. Matthew Burns
Hi, my name is Matthew Burns and I am very excited to be a member of the Cardinal Ridge staff! This year will be my ninteenth year working for Loudoun County Public Schools. During my educational career I have spent eleven years teaching fifth grade, one year teaching third, and for six years I served as an Assistant Principal.
I earned my Bachelor's degree in History from Alfred University in Alfred, New York. After spending six years in the advertising field in Minneapolis and and New York, I returned to school and received my Master's degree in Elementary Education from Syracuse University. I also possess an administrative endorsement from the University of Virginia.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching movies, and walking the most magical dog ever... Buddy, a Border Collie/Rotweiler mix. I also love cheering on my beloved New York Yankees, New York Giants, and Syracuse University basketball and football. My fantastic wife, Danielle, and I are proud residents of South Riding along with our fantastic 8th Grade son, Aidan, who attends J.Michael Lunsford Middle School.
Here's to an outstanding year in 5th Grade! Go Red Wings!
