Agnes Sofka

Program Assistant - Chrysalis Program


Agnes is a native Houstonian, growing up in northwest Houston. She has been married for eight years to John who is also a native Houstonian.

They have made their home in the nearby Spring Shadows neighborhood and they were familiar with the Monarch school location when it was still a soccer field. She watched the buildings as they were built and thought they were beautiful but never imagined she would work here one day.

She is the youngest of eight in her family. She was always around children whether babysitting or working at her church. She still enjoys being near them so being the Program Assistant for Chrysalis and Therapy Services puts her at the center of attention for all of the students every day. And she loves it.

Agnes attended Houston Community College and before coming to Monarch she worked as an administrative assistant for Baylor College of Medicine and Surgical Eye Associates. She also worked in the classrooms of St. Ambrose Catholic School and St. Jerome Catholic School.

When time allows she enjoys baking goodies for church fundraisers, going to neighborhood festivals, movies, reading and watching the Astros and Texans.
