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 eighteenth year working for Loudoun County Public Schools. During my educational career I have spent ten 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 my two great dogs...Scout, a Golden Retreiver, and 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 7th Grade son, Aidan, who attends J.Michael Lunsford Middle School.
Here's to an outstanding year in 5th Grade! Go Red Wings!
