One of the best history teachers that I have literally ever had. He makes sure you understand everything and just an amazing person to talk to outside of class as well.

AP Comp. Gov't was a great class. Always willing to help and makes sure you fully understand the concepts of the material, rather than just merely memorizing the facts. I was well prepared for the AP exam. Story days were fun

Mr. Burns is by far one of the best teachers at GC. At times his class can seem challenging but he does a great job reviewing notes before quizzes and helping his students any way possible. Great guy!

He has been teaching there forever, and for good reason. One of my favorite teachers at Good Counsel, his class was one of the reasons I became a history major in college.

One of my top 2 teachers at GC! I took his US1945 class- take it, study, you'll easily get an A or B. I'll always remember his Friday story days... I highly recommend taking this course and Mr. Burns!

Two words; BURNS' LAW! In all seriousness, Mr. Burns was the best, most in-touch teacher I had at GC. You had to use your brain and that is the mark of a good teacher.

I've had many teachers, some of them pretty high flying academics, and Mr Burns is without a doubt the absolute best teacher I've ever had. Period.
