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 22nd year working for Loudoun County Public Schools.  During my educational career I have spent thirteen years teaching fifth grade, one year teaching fourth, 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 while listening to my Itunes.  I also love cheering on my beloved New York Yankees, New York Giants, and Syracuse University basketball and football teams.  My fantastic wife, Danielle, and I are proud residents of South Riding along with our fantastic 11th Grade son, Aidan, who attends Freedom High School.

Here's to an outstanding year in 4th Grade!  Go Red Wings!
