Head Instructor Scheller earned her 3rd Dan in August 2015. She has been an Instructor with Esperanza TKD since 2010. Mrs. Scheller enjoys working with our beginner students helping them begin their journey to black belt. Her biggest reward is watching students grow in skills as they advance in rank.

Instructor Phillip Scheller 
Mr. Scheller earned his 1st Dan in October 2014 as well as earning his Instructor degree.  Instructor Scheller works with our beginner students on a regular basis and heads up our Bible lessons at TKD every week.  He enjoys teaching others the art and skill of self-defense and seeing them become better than they thought they could be.  But His favorite aspects of TKD are teaching others about Jesus and the ways of God through scripture during the class devotions, and how these directly relate to learning TKD and living our lives.  Instructor Phillip enjoys wood working, hunting and the shooting sports, is a retired F-16 fighter pilot, and an ordained elder here at Esperanza Community Church.
