C. M. Russell High School has welcomed a new Rustler into the family, and that person is German teacher David Jamison.

Jamison comes to CMR from Cut Bank, where he taught for two years. Prior to working in Cut Bank, he taught for 20 years all over Montana in towns including Chester. 

Jamison’s previous schools were small, and he said the teachers from CMR have helped him adjust to the larger school size. He teaches German classes and also teaches two credit recovery classes.

 “The people I work with are just fabulous,” he said. All in all, he has been making the switch to the larger school quite well. 

Although Jamison works at CMR he does not live in Great Falls; he commutes every day from Choteau.

“I really like the town of Great Falls,“ he said. Jamison has family that also live in Great Falls, including his brother-in-law and his sister, who are both teachers.

When Jamison is not at CMR he said he enjoys spending time with his family and going on hikes and making use of the Great Falls trail system as well as visiting other landmarks.

“One of my favorite places is the park at Ryan Dam.”
