The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of a professional development program for agricultural education teachers in Costa Rica. This time series follow-up study assessed the impact of a five-day workshop that focused on agricultural and environmental topics at three points over a two-month period. The 13 participants in the workshop served as the population-sample. The results revealed that the workshop was beneficial to the participants. A majority of the participants felt "slightly prepared" or "better prepared" to teach the content to their students upon completion of the workshop. Participants reported that the lesson plans developed at the workshop were helpful and that they planned to use them. A majority of the participants felt "slightly prepared" or "better prepared" to share the workshop contents with their colleagues, and most of them had done so in some manner within two months after the workshop.
