Hancock's Special Education Teachers

Mrs. Pian

Mrs. Pian

Hello! My name is Lindsay Pian. I graduated from Cal State San Marcos and completed my multiple subject and special education teaching credentials there as well. I have been an education specialist at Hancock Elementary since the beginning of 2015. It’s such a privilege to be part of this amazing team of educators. My passion is finding ways to help meaningfully include all students in their classroom communities both academically and socially. I love when my students feel proud of themselves. My husband Brandon and I have a 3-year-old son named Isaac. We enjoy riding scooters, building Lego structures, singing and dancing in our living room, and watching all kinds of delivery and emergency vehicles

Ms. Hong

Hi!  My name is Yehee Hong, and I joined the Hancock Staff as an additional Education Specialist this year. I am thrilled to work with this fantastic Hancock team every Wednesday and Thursday.

I would like to share a little bit about myself.  I received my bachelor’s degree in Special Education in Korea, my home country, then taught students as a full-time teacher, over two years.  After that, I earned my Master’s degree in Special Education in Michigan, where I lived for almost ten years.  During my ten-year career as an educator, I have taught many different grade levels, been an Education Specialist, a substitute teacher and a tutor. 

I live with my best friend and husband, Jae-young, and our two lovely kids, Sarang, which means “love” in pure Korean, and Hanbit, which means “Light of God.” Whenever we have free time, we enjoy biking, playing soccer and badminton.  

I look forward to building a relationship with Hancock students and providing a rigorous and engaging learning environment!

Speech Therapists


Mrs. Chittadara


Hi, my name is Tune Chittadara and I am one of the Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) at Hancock Elementary School.  I have been working as an SLP for 19 years and 16 of those years have been at Hancock Elementary School.  I feel so fortunate to be working with amazing students, parents, and staff at this school.  My goal is to help students find their unique voice as they use language to think, learn, affirm their ideas, and develop social relationships. 

I currently live in Escondido with my husband and our two children.  Both of my children attended Hancock Elementary, and now are teenagers.  My son, Nick, is a junior in high school and my daughter, Adora, is starting her second year in college.  They both have a black belt ranking in taekwondo.  Nick also enjoys playing the guitar while Adora likes to play the piano.  During our free time, my family and I enjoy snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking, jogging, cooking, and traveling together.
