Joyce Tuten


I teach Chemistry at Clarksburg High School in Maryland. I've been teaching for 17 years, moving around with my husband - a retired Army soldier. 

In 2013, while teaching AP Environmental Science at Frederick High School, I became a certified NOAA Climate Steward Educator and had the opportunity to receive training at NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research). I also attended training with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Climate Reality Project. I'm also one of the Co-Leaders of the Frederick chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby.

As a member of the Middletown Sustainability Committee, I gave a one hour talk in December 2018, entitled "Understanding Climate Change." And from there, this website was born.

I hope to teach the science to as many people who want to listen. I teach for my children (and all the world's children) and the future Earth they will inherit.
