Motivating teachers plays a major role in achieving educational goals. However, despite the commitment of the Government of Tanzania to improve teachers’ salaries and teaching and learning environment, students achievement in National Examinations has been declining over and over again. In this case the consequences of motivation on teachers performance remain largely unexplored. This study sought to investigate the effect of motivation on teachers’ performance in Muleba District Council. The objectives sought to identify the type of motivation practices applied to enhance teachers’ performance, the relationship between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation on teachers’ performance and evaluating teachers’ performance. The study employed the cross-sectional design through which the data was collected throughout primary and secondary sources. The study revealed that, Heads of schools and Council Directors used different practices in motivating staff in secondary schools. Teachers were paid their salaries timely and were recognized for work well. It was concluded that motivation had significant effect on teachers’ performance. In order to improve teachers motivation and performance at work, the study recommended that salary timely and being recognized for the work well done influence secondary school teachers’ performance in Muleba District Council, for that case all stakeholders have to work collaboratively in order to improve the performance of teachers. The study suggested next research to be done on the effect of performance management in managing teachers’ performance.
