Proprietary commercial software is absurdly expensive and that rules out its use in a classroom setting unless you are doing a very expensive, vendor endorsed certification class. But if teaching image editing to beginners is the real objective, there is no excuse for that; the GIMP exists.

I have a tutorial up that provides basic orientation, including how to customize the interface and a couple of useful tweaks like setting up a keyboard + mouse wheel command to change brush size on the fly. There's also a quick intro to layers and layer masks, and links to suggested resources for practical instruction in common editing tasks. You might be able to pull some useful stuff out of it.
