Humans of Northwood: Sam DiBitetto ’18


“I’m from the ‘Dirty Roch.’ I am 18 years old, I was born in Rochester, New York, I’m half Italian, a quarter German and a quarter Irish. I’m 5’8. This is my second year at Northwood. I am positive you will never meet a kid who loves Northwood and this environment more than myself. I love it here so much because I am with my best friends everyday. The teachers here are really awesome, and the hockey environment is what completes it all. I play hockey here during the winter season, then come off season, I am all about the lax life. Only good times and laughs with the boys on and off the field every day. I have really learned to appreciate my Speech class taught by Mr. Riffle, because it will help me develop skills that are crucial later on in life. I was terrified of public speaking, but Mr. Riffle did push me pass my fear, and I am forever thankful for that. Mrs. Edwards was one of my favorite teachers at Northwood, before she left us for China. Being in this amazing environment has opened my eyes to multiple different career paths, specifically in education and coaching. Coach Cassidy and all my current and previous teachers have demonstrated the skills needed to be a successful teacher/coach, and it is something I would for sure love doing in the future.”
