As you suggest, Adobe Spark can serve to capture ideas of the classes you want to teach. You can create the necessary resources so that students are up to date both digitally and in person. Behance can be used to share many ideas, don't forget. You can also create infographics within the classroom, this is so that children or teenagers do not get bored easily, I have seen that they pay better attention by viewing representative graphics or drawings than to a powerpoint text plane. ​

​Hi Matthew! Which grade levels and subject are you teaching? So true that 'getting started' resources are invaluable to ensure educators' success and peace of mind during the first two years.
