Chestnut Ridge Meet The Staff


Kayla Browell has been the Chestnut Ridge After 3 site coordinator for the past two years. She also is in her third year teaching in the district’s alternative education program through Ignite. She is certified in elementary and special education with a degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.


Kayla and her husband Matthew have two dogs and a cat.


Kayla enjoys watching sports – Steelers, Pirates and Penguin and going to Penn State games. In addition, she enjoys hunting and fishing.


In the After 3 program Kayla says she enjoys interacting with students and getting to know them better than she can in a regular classroom. “The program provides a safe place for students to come to get homework and other academic help, make friends and do a variety of activities.”
