Professor Jenn Wilson-Gonzalez

Professor Jenn Wilson-Gonzalez began teaching at Oxnard College in the fall of 2017. She currently teaches courses on early American history, Mexican American history, the history of Mexico, and the history of women in the US. Prior to Oxnard College, she has taught at Mt. San Antonio College, Santa Ana College, and the University of California, Riverside. She has also taught courses on CSET preparation (US and World History), and has presented at various conferences, panels, workshops, and events. Professor Wilson-Gonzalez earned her B.A. from UCLA (2009), and completed her graduate work at UCR (2012). Her graduate work focused on the history of California (Los Angeles) and on the historic preservation of its built environment.

As a beneficiary of the community college, and as a “non-traditional” student, Professor Wilson-Gonzalez understands the numerous and diverse obstacles that many community college students face. She is dedicated to providing the scaffolding, knowledge, and encouragement required to help prepare her students to achieve their educational, career, and personal goals. She’ll even throw in a few corny history jokes and anecdotes for good measure.
