Elle a enseigné en France métropolitaine, en Polynésie française, en Suisse et en Italie, dans des institutions diverses et dans des formats allant du cours traditionnel au cours en ligne.

Elle est l’auteur d’une didactique du français langue étrangère (Presses de l’Université de las Palmas, janvier 2009) dans laquelle les TIC occupent une large place sans pour autant minimiser celle de l’enseignant, tout au contraire.
