Meet Miss. Renee

(and her sous chef Oliver)


Hello! My name is Renee Hanna. I am the founder & owner of Silly Spoons LLC. This exciting venture combines my passions for food and working with children. For as long as I can remember, I've enjoyed being in the kitchen. Whether it was watching and learning from family members or just enjoying meals with loved ones, the kitchen has always been a place I've felt most connected. As my own family grew, dinner time became essential to our every day routine and sharing homemade desserts makes for unforgettable memories. My experiences as an elementary educator opened my eyes to the endless opportunities for learning. My vision is to use the culinary arts to foster self confidence, enrich oral language, develop fine motor skills, enforce math/science concepts, build teamwork, and encourage creativity. All while instilling a life long love for everything culinary!

Meet Miss Kerri

Lead Class Instructor/Lead Event Host

Kerri is a student, barista supervisor, and Lead Cooking Instructor at Silly Spoons. When she’s not working, she’s probably with her two pups or tending to her many plants. Kerri is a big sister and proud aunt to the most special kiddos! She comes from a big family and is always one to count on for the most delicious baked goods, and savory dishes. So it’s no surprise her favorite place is the kitchen, where she is always whipping up something new. She takes great pride in providing a safe and creative space for every child in the kitchen. To her, every Silly Spoons class/event is an opportunity to help a child gain confidence in the kitchen!
