Erica Gonzales, Co-Director
Hello everyone! My name is Erica Gonzales, Co-Director of The Children’s Center of Austin – Northwest. I have had the honor of being a part of The Children’s Center of Austin since 2011. My dream has always been to become a Director and I am beyond thrilled to be one here at CCOA – Northwest! Early childhood development has always been a passion of mine.
Together with a team of amazing staff, I am committed to providing your family with a loving foundation for a lifetime of learning. In 2011, I graduated from Texas State University with a Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences and a major in Family and Child development. After college, I was hired by The Children’s Center of Austin – Westlake, where I served as a teacher and then became a Curriculum Coordinator.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family! My daughter, Maizie, is currently two and a half and is my biggest joy! She has grown leaps and bounds at The Children’s Center of Austin and it is a privilege to watch her grow in our wonderful program.
I highly encourage you all to check out our facility! We would love to have you join our CCOA family.
Chaela Morgan, Co-Director
Always creating and always smiling, that’s me. In 2004 I had the opportunity to start working at CCOA and have been loving every second of it. Hi, I’m Chaela! I am a native Californian and proud Longhorn alum with a passion for all things children.
My start in life led me to work at CCOA part-time while working towards being a college math professor but a detour (my daughter, Deja) helped me discover the joy and fulfillment of the early childhood profession. As a lefty, I use my crazy imagination and creativity to my advantage when mentoring, teaching, and leading our teachers, family, and school. As one of the directors at our Northwest Austin school, my goal is to provide a top-notch family-oriented experience to all.
When I’m not sitting at home watching my K-dramas or Grey’s Anatomy reruns, I enjoy chatting with my daughter about her college experiences, finding relaxing staycation spots to get lost in a good book, and checking on my 49ers and Lakers to see if I’ll have any bragging rights for the year.
Every day is a great day here at CCOA and I can’t wait to get to know you!
