Meet our new staff members - Part 2

posted: Fri, Dec 8th, 2017

Mount Olive Middle School welcomed several new staff members this year; here are short profiles on two:

Brittany LaRusso (Guidance)

Brittany LaRusso is no stranger to MOMS.  She worked here last year as a maternity leave replacement.

Ms. LaRusso holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Rutgers and a master’s in school counseling from the University of Scranton. While at Scranton she was a graduate assistant for the Counseling and Human Services Department, assisting with research and teaching a group dynamics course.

“My experience at Mount Olive Middle School has been amazing,” Ms. LaRusso said. “The staff is so caring and knowledgeable. And by the end of school year, I hope to meet every student here. Each child is so unique and brings something special to the school.”

Ms. LaRusso grew up right here in Morris County. When she’s not at work, she likes to run, spend time with her dogs, and travel.

Nicole Sequeira (English)

Nicole Sequeira grew up in Bridgewater, New Jersey but now makes Mount Olive her home. She and her fiancé – and their dogs, Leo and Oscar – bought a home here over the summer.

Ms. Sequeira, who holds a bachelor’s in English education from Kean University, previously taught seventh-graders in the Township of Union before coming to MOMS.

"I believe that everyone has something they are meant to do in life, and mine was always to be a teacher,” she said. “I love being able to help kids tap into their true potential and give them creative outlets to demonstrate their talents."

In her spare time, she enjoys reading, gardening, spending time with family, and kayaking.
