Margarita Mainé

Margarita Mainé was born in 1960 in Ingeniero Maschwitz, a town in the province of Buenos Aires. She qualified as a pre-school teacher at the "Sara C. de Eccleston" National Institute of Teacher Training. In this way she began her teaching career as a teacher of kindergarden and discovered an endless source of tales, stories and anecdotes arising from working day-to-day with children. Initially, she worked with children with hearing difficulties and later became a pre-school and primary school teacher, which she did for 15 years. For her, writing tales is a way of keeping in contact with her childhood and with the children.
