The aim of this study was to assess what determine teachers` motivation, leading to performance in secondary schools at Monduli district. Specifically, the study examined the factors that influence teacher motivation and performance in Monduli District; assess the strategies applied to raise and maintain secondary school teachers’ motivation in Monduli District; and to identify the views of teachers on effective motivational strategies in secondary schools at Monduli District.In conducting this study, survey design was used to collect data from 94 purposive sampled respondents through questionnaire and interview schedules. Findings from the study depart from the norm terms of determinants of teachers` motivation and what extant literature holds as typified in the work of Abraham Maslow’s and Herzberg’s two factors Theory. In regards, teachers and students selected courses that would help them develop their career. Finally, the flexibility of the course design did not adversely affect their work schedule. The study recommended that authorities should rethink on ways to motivate teachers based on their needs, interests and aspirations rather than considering teachers’ motivational needs as abstract and universal. Furthermore it was suggested that educational stakeholders must be responsible in motivating teachers by involving them in decision making process, including curriculum change and other educational interventions. Keywords: An inner state that energizes, moves, channels and sustains behavior towards goal.
