This paper provides lessons learned from successfull climate change professional development for teachers in the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, including the importance of inquiry-based curriculum activities, the importance of an oppotunity to "learn by doing" and to share their perspectives with their colleagues. Finally, development and continuation of the learning community, both among participants as well as with instructors and scientists, provides critical support to classroom educators, who can at times experience a sense of professional isolation
