Full-time History Professor Tom Jones

Hello there everyone!

I am a History Instructor here at PVC. I was raised a “Military Brat” in Riverside California, while my dad served in the United States Marines Corp.. I received my BS and MA from the Cal-State University system. I started my teaching career when I was older- 40. I was an Adjunct Instructor for College of the Desert. Imperial Valley College and PVC before being hired full time in Fall 2022. I enjoy traveling. My wife of 30+ years and I spend our summers in Norway when life permits. For me, 80’s and country music rock! As Garth says, “life is about …The Dance.”

Please feel free to let me know if I can be of any assistance to you on your educational journey.
