Abstract

This study investigated teacher motivation and its implications on their Performance of duties in public secondary schools in Kinondoni municipality. Specifically, the study sought to find out whether extrinsic and intrinsic motivation of teachers had some any effect on their performance of duties. The study had three objectives, namely; to investigate the effects of extrinsic motivation on the day to day duty performance; to investigate the effects of intrinsic motivation on the day to day duty performance; and to find out whether motivation of teachers has any effects on their morale to perform their duties. The theoretical framework was adopted as a concept theory of Omari (2011). A total of 48 respondents were covered, 5 head of schools, 40 teachers, 2 Tanzania Teachers Union officials (TTU) and District Educational Officer (DEO). The primary data was collected using structured questionnaires for teachers, as well as interview for heads of schools, Tanzania Teachers Union officials (TTU) and District Educational Officer. The findings have revealed that poor motivation of teachers compromise the quality of education provided in public secondary schools. Shortage of teachers, shortage of teaching and learning materials, inadequate houses for teachers, poor working environment, lack of in- service training, inadequate salaries, and lack of teaching allowances affected the performance of teachers in Kinondoni district. Based on the findings it is recommended that in order to improve teacher’s performance, job satisfaction of teachers should be considered so as to encourage them in carrying out their duties. It is also recommended that government authorities should establish the means of dealing with the teachers’ problems so as to provide teachers with satisfactory incentives and effective payment of promotion benefits.
