This study assessed the influence of teachers’ job satisfaction on students’ academic performance: a case study of Bagamoyo District secondary schools. Data were collected using the questionnaire and interview schedules. The sample size consisted of 280 respondents, comprising of 210 teachers and 70 head teachers. The study used the random sampling technique when sampling teachers. In the other hand, purposive sampling was used to sample head teachers. Stratified sampling technique was used to select the secondary schools. The findings reveal that teachers work in poor conditions typified with a lack of in-service training, promotion, and necessary facilities like housing, chalks, tables, and chairs. Most of them live long-distance from schools where they teach hence affecting their capabilities to fulfill their daily teaching responsibilities, which results in a reduction in their work morale. This was also seen to result in teacher absenteeism and lateness, which leads to lower students' academic performance. The study recommends that the government should address the problems faced by public secondary school teachers in order to boost students’ academic performance. To achieve this, the study recommends provision of adequate teaching facilities, equal opportunities for growth, in-service training, security, and reasonable payment among many others. Keywords: Teachers’, Job Satisfaction, Students’ Academic Performance, Influence.
