Jeff Palmquist is one of those men who's done with his work day by 3 p.m. He gets weeks off for vacation every couple of months. He has the time to lay on the floor with his children in the middle of the afternoon.
Palmquist is a Lodi High School English teacher. His lifestyle is the envy of countless men and women who wake up to a buzzing alarm clock, dress in suits, ties and pantyhose and head to an office until sundown. While they are in their 10 a.m. meeting, he might be out in the summer sun, reading for pleasure, taking trips or just getting out of bed.
