In "The Castle", DuFour and Palladium talk about how excited they are for the start of the year. Wizgiz, that could not reach the window to see the new students, transforms himself into a gray mouse to get through, and makes Dufour faints out of fright.

Bloom asks to go with Stella, and DuFour allows, but she says Bloom will never learn anything like that.
#29: Magic Tournament
In "Magic Tournament", DuFour explains that if they want a spell to be as effective as possible, one must pay close attention on how its pronounced, the more pleasant and harmonious the verses are, the more effective the spell will be. The rhyme between the verses symbolize the harmony and equilibrium of the world and thus of the mind, and that the interior harmony is fundamental in becoming a real fairy.
DuFour then, ask two fairies to give an example with a spell that could change the humidity in the air. She encorage her students to act with determination and that they can do even better if they use what they have learned in magic and literature. After DuFour's Rain Spell display, Musa comments how DuFour and her verses are good.
In "Issue 33: Ghosts", DuFour carried out with exercises on the laboratory for the written technical magic potion test. Because of a suspect concerning the Winx, Principal Faragonda interjects on DuFour's class. DuFour answers that everything is alright and promptly allows Faragonda to do a roll call but Faragonda is interrupted by Knut as she was wanted on the phone. Later on, DuFour tells Faragonda that the Winx handed terrible exercises for the written test, resulting Faragonda on following them and discovering that their good will was also applying the most technical magic potion in the best way possible, and for such the Winx passed the test with full marks.

In front of DuFour is displayed two golden books, while on the blackboard behind her, it can be seen two complex drawings, each one with a sphere on top of symmetric structures with a curved formation/base underneath it. It is also noted the following technical assets on the blackboard: "First: ... out spherometer on the tool" and "Second: measure ... mirror".
#39: The King of Rock

In "The Cursed Jewel", DuFour catches Stella cheating on the formulas test. Looking at Stella's paper, DuFour states that it is the best resume she has ever seen, with the whole book written in it.

#79: Conflicts of the Heart
In "Conflicts of the Heart", compared with other issues, DuFour was very stiff in her class. Stella was chatting with the other Winx about their party plan when DuFour caught her. DuFour made Stella go on the blackboard and explain reverse transmutation. After noticing Bloom's magic to help Stella, DuFour scolded both of them, emphasizing that magic should be used for really important things not to cheat in class. DuFour confessed she had used the trick as well before, but it never works. She asks Stella again to define reverse transmutation, this time without magic, and ends up giving her two detentions and a warning to Bloom.
#82: Forbidden Magic
In"Forbidden Magic", DuFour is shown only once. She tells Roxy how instead of solving the question on the blackboard she made it even more complicated.
Like all teachers at Alfea, it can be assumed that DuFour is powerful when it comes to magic. DuFour's magically abilities range from the most simplistic (such as closing a book magically) to great difficulty. Most notably, DuFour appears to specialize in spells that utilizes eloquence and literature, seeing as how she had no trouble conjuring a thunderstorm through poetic words.
