David Ismailov graduated from AAS Moscow in 2015 and pursued a degree in Media and Communications at Swansea University. He is currently finishing another degree in Business Administration at the Key West University.
While at AAS, David participated in a range of Penguin Life activities and was captain of the Penguin Varsity Basketball team in his senior year. It was natural that he continued playing ball for his university team.
During his studies, David started a successful career at a mobile marketing firm in Moscow.
It was 2018 when David decided to reconnect with AAS Moscow and find ways to give back to the school community. David started to volunteer at AAS and was soon offered paid lifeguarding, substitute teaching opportunities as well as helping coach the HS D2 Boys Basketball Team. In 2019, David became a full-time member of the AAS Aquatics team where he taught swimming lessons and developed programming and documentation for the department, as well as continuing to coach HS D2 Boys Basketball, where they won all of the tournaments that season.
Recently, David was promoted to the role of Aquatics Coordinator where he manages a team of swim instructors and develops programming for the AAS Aquatics department.
“I am proud to be the Aquatics Coordinator at AAS and I believe that with the amazing team that I have in the Aquatics Department we will be able to improve the overall program and provide the best learning to students.”
In addition to a successful career at AAS, David continues to play basketball in a local competitive league.
