I can not recommend Laylee’s course enough! It’s incredibly comprehensive and helps you structure your education in a way that is going to bring your students the best and lasting results! She is an incredible teacher and helps you craft an intentional educational experience whether you’re launching mentoring sessions or dreaming of becoming a speaker. The course offers incredible knowledge on so many great topics so if you eventually decide that you want to expand your offerings, this course has you covered! It's also a resource that I know I'll come back to time and time again as I slowly continue to expand on my educational offerings!

I am so thankful to have The Creative Educator Academy as my guiding resource throughout my path toward becoming a creative educator! This program is so much more than a surface-level tutorial to content creation; instead, it goes much deeper into how to teach. Because of that, I now feel equipped to offer quality education in any format—from 1:1 mentoring sessions to larger scale membership programs and future courses. This program doesn't just help you produce quality education... it helps you become a quality educator. If that's not a rewarding return on investment, I don't know what is!

The Creative Educator Academy has completely blown me away! Laylee has helped me find the heart behind my business and given me the direction I need to get into education. Not only is she so knowledgeable on this subject, but she is also so sweet and kind. Laylee has this fantastic ability to take a 7 minute video and use it to change the entire way I view my business. Of all the courses and educational content I purchased in 2019, this was by far my favourite and most valuable! Laylee boosted my confidence and helped me book my first speaking gig at my favourite conference!

Curious about what's included?

Take a peek at the syllabus...

unit one: Creating Captivating curriculum

This is the core of a great educational offering: a well-designed curriculum. You will learn how to design an effective baseline curriculum method—equipping you to help any student succeed through a tailored and goal-oriented process.

unit two: Creating
a mentoring program

Mentoring is a great place to start educating: the one-on-one environment allows you to practice teaching and implement a signature process. But where do you begin? How can you make sure your mentoring session is worth the investment—and protect it from being just a glorified coffee date.

unit three: in-person experiences

Workshops, retreats, and other in-person experiences are incredibly rewarding, but they can also be a challenge. How can you reach multiple levels of skill within one classroom setting? In this unit, you'll learn how to tailor your teaching style to impact all levels.

unit four: masterminds
and group learning

Thinking about hosting a mastermind, group coaching program, or other type of group learning? This unit will cover everything you need to know about designing curriculum for this type of setting—including creating accountability, hosting online calls, and leaving an impact on every student.

unit five: Speaking engagements

Maybe you have dreams of speaking on a stage—inspiring and motivating others with your story. But how do you even get started in the educational sphere? How do you land a speaking engagement, prep for a topic, and leave a lasting impact on stage? I'll guide you through all of it!

unit six: courses + online teaching

You asked for it—and now it's here! Unit Six is an all-new module covering the basics of online course creation and teaching. Learn which platform is right for you, how to record your videos, and (most importantly) how to effectively teach to an online audience.

every unit includes a

Where you can take notes, fill in the blanks, and design your own curriculum in a guided step-by-step process.

I totally get it. Imposter syndrome is real. And honestly, being an educator isn't for everyone. But if you have a heart for teaching and unique expertise to share, you can be an educator! All it takes is a little training. This program will help you uncover your "Zone of Genius" and teach you how to share it in a way that delivers value to your own students.

The Creative Educator Academy will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to call yourself an Educator with confidence!

I'm nervous to call myself an "educator." Is this program for me?

The program is designed to last for 5 weeks, with about 2–3 hours of content per week. I recommend following the program one week at a time to stay on track, but you can also take it at your own pace. You can also use the Facebook group to ask any questions!

You'll also have lifetime access to the course (including future updates!), so you can always go back to review anything you missed! Plus, you'll be in our Facebook group for ongoing content, Q&A, and community support.

How much time should I expect to invest in the program?
