Your Name: Scott Nelson

Your company: Rye Country Day School

MyRye.com: What do you do?

Nelson: Head of School

Where do you work?

Nelson: I work from my school office, which is currently situated between the Lower School and Middle School offices. I have been head of RCDS for 28 years so this is the third location for my office on campus. This past year I have occasionally participated in evening Zoom sessions from the dining room table at home; however, since I live on campus, it usually is just easier to go back to my office for these sessions.

Describe your desk and office.

Nelson: My office is centrally located in the Main Building so I get to see students, faculty, and staff throughout the day. My desk has various files for different projects I am working on. I have a list of school telephone extensions under a clear plastic mat on the desk and a printed school directory in the top drawer.

A computer with a large monitor dominates most of the desk space. I have a few photos of my family, including our two granddaughters. Besides some RCDS photos I have a large framed American flag that an alumnus sent us from his Marine outpost in Iraq after the Lower School sent boxes of items we collected for his soldiers.

I also have my favorite Norman Rockwell poster – Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You. There is a couch and several chairs for the numerous meetings that take place in my office.
