viewing open terminal through ssh

I am fairly new to linux but I am trying to view an open terminal through ssh. I am wanting to do this to change settings on an open terminal without having to go home or walk up stairs. I have looked for quite some time but have found nothing on how to do this.

Next time you open a terminal and leave it open.. start a screen session on it.. then you can connect anywhere to that terminal if you have access to the machine.

man screen for more details.
