Abstract

This research project investigated teachers’ perceptions on the role of motivation in teaching performance in community secondary schools in Dodoma Municipality. The specific objectives of the study were: 1) to explore the perception of teachers on motivation and work performance 2) to examine the perceptions of teachers on the factors that influence the level of teachers’ motivation and 3) to determine the effects of motivation on teachers’ work performance in community secondary schools in Dodoma Municipality. The study used a mixed method of data collection with 51 respondents from secondary schools in Dodoma Municipality were used. The study found that the perceptions of teachers on the role of motivation on work performance were not homogeneous. This is because the majority of them had a view that low motivation had a negative effective effect towards teachers’ commitment to work and students’ academic performance. In contrast, other teachers believed that less organizational commitment led to teacher de-motivation and less work performance. This study recommends the need to create a fair work environment so as to give accessibility of job fringe benefits to teachers at all levels regardless. Moreover, there is a need to establish a unit that will monitor and regulate all teachers’ motivational issues at the ward and Municipal level. Finally, there is a need for management to introduce and use transformative leadership style in managing community secondary schools. For further studies, this study recommends a broader comparative study, which will involve both the public and private schools in Tanzania.
