Mr. Turnquist

HELLO EVERYONE!!!  My name is JayCee Turnquist and this is my forth year at Cedar Lane!  I am excited to begin my ninth year of teaching Health and Physical Education. I am married to Desiree Turnquist, one of our 5th-grade teachers, and we have five children!  Vanessa, JayCee III, Joshua, Jewel, and Jordan. I also have 6 pets! Puck, Cinder, Ember, and Frost (all cats) Roni and Gypsy (dog).
I graduated from George Mason University in 2013!  I just finished my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from George Washington University.  Prior to teaching, I was in the Army for 21 years as a Cavalry Scout!
I have visited 33 world countries and one of my favorite places was visiting Babylon in Iraq. I love National Parks and have visited over 100. My favorites so far have been Devils Tower and Mesa Verde. Now I am currently working on visiting all the Virginia State Parks and have 15 of 38 completed.
