Dawn Roeth
Kids Director

Dawn is a homeschool mom (including a foster!) and is thrilled to be working alongside her daughter, Ellie. She loves Jesus, musical theatre, and working with kids. She originally pursued a degree in music before going into nursing, which she has done for 26 years. Music is still a major part of her life, as she has the ability to torture her children by singing the wrong lyrics to most songs consistently. 

Dawn has a passion to see little ones grow in their confidence on stage as well as in their relationship with Christ and each other. She has the opportunity to direct a music camp for the last 22 years. It is a joy to watch the kids perform and have such a great time. 

She looks forward to working with the fantastic MTE kids!
