I would like to make some nice looking worksheets, tests, and quiz papers for my wife's classroom. I see her and other teachers typing up a simple quiz and then wasting a lot of time fighting Word to get it to look decent. TeX seems to be a perfect fit for this (especially if I code up a database of questions to pull from). I'd like some way to incorporate an image or two (ideally vector-based) and have an easy way to enlarge the text for any vision-impaired students.
Where would be a good place to start for reading up on this (websites, books, podcasts, etc.)? Are there any editors and packages that would fit this role better than others? I've attempted to do this a few times but I end up getting lost in a sea of dependencies or using bad practices that lead to broken documents with strange errors.
