Mr. Kyle Samuels

Hello all! I am very excited about starting this 2022-2023 school year at Independence High School.

I am originally from South Bend, Indiana and have called Virginia home for seven years now.  If you're a fan of Notre Dame, then we already have something in common! I earned my B.S. as well as my M.A. in Technology and Engineering Education from Ball State University. Before arriving at Indy, I previously taught technology education at Trailside and Mercer Middle School. This year I am pleased to announce that I have taken on the new role of Technical Director and am working closely with the Theater Department.

Prior to teaching, I worked in a variety of fields encompassing architecture.  I was a drafter for interior designers, landscape architects, construction companies, and the commercial modular industry.  While in college, I often spent my summers working for the architectural department at Notre Dame University.  

In my free time I enjoy traveling, hiking, cooking, reading, cycling.  I also really enjoy going to concerts, conventions, festivals, and spending time with my wife (Nasreen) and our three cats (Max, Dobby, and Chloe).
