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

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.
