Abstract: Teachers in Ghana have expressed a lot of discontent about the absence of human resource development, poor working conditions, poor compensation and poor human relations in schools. This has caused high teacher turnover tied with poor grades in Junior High Schools owing to lack of dedication towards work. The work focused on motivation of teachers on their job performance in La- Nkwantanang Madina Education Directorate. The objective of the study was to find the effect of motivation on job performance of teachers. A sample of 110 teachers was drawn from some selected basic schools in La-Nkwantanang Madina Education Directorate in Greater Accra. It was found that teachers were generally demotivated. Again, the study found teacher motivation to have a significant effect on job performance of teachers. Lastly, the study found difference in both teacher motivation and job performance of teachers due to school type. In order to improve teacher motivation and performance at work, the study recommended among others; such as increased salaries, provision of accommodation to teachers, strengthening of supervision and instituting awards for good performance.
