Ms C Bottari

When did you join the RGS? 2022

What’s the best thing about the RGS? The commitment to excellence in education. And also Friday cake!

What excites you most about coming into work each day? The opportunity to inspire and empower students through literature and knowledge. Good books can really change lives and I hope to be able to make a positive impact on our students’ future one book at a time.

What’s your life philosophy/motto in life? 一期一会 Ichi-go ichi-e, “one opportunity, one encounter.” – each moment and each encounter is always a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

If you were allowed one dream perk, what would it be? Free gelato everyday.

If you could choose one superhuman ability what would it be? The power to control time: slowing it down when I am happy and relaxed, speeding it up when busy with boring stuff, and even traveling through time!

What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat? While living in China, I tried jellyfish and coagulated duck blood, so I should be ready to face anything. However, I strongly dislike cinnamon.

If you could be any cartoon character who would you be? Pikachu
