Abstract: This was an exploratory study about the motivation of secondary school teachers in Mukono town. This was after the realization that many Ugandan teachers were suffering from low morale due to the hard working conditions [i.e. lower salaries, unsupportive parents, lack of career development, job insecurity, undisciplined pupils, lack of stipends, etc] and this was bound to affect the teaching-learning process. The study specifically sought to achieve the following objectives: to find out the determinants of the motivation of secondary school teachers and to identify the ways of improving the motivation of secondary school teachers. To achieve the stated objectives, the study was guided by the following research questions. What are the determinants of the motivation of secondary school teachers? What are the identifiable ways of improving the motivation of secondary school teachers? The study design took the form of a case study of the assessment of the motivation of secondary school teachers in Mukono Town. The study also involved purposive sampling in which the data sought were qualitative. A purposively selected sample of 50 respondents who included 15 teachers, 10 parents, 10 opinion leaders, five education officers and 10 students was involved in the study. The data were collected using interviews and observations for primary data and documents analysis for secondary data. The data were analyzed qualitatively through the literal description and narrations of the emerging issues out of which authentic conclusions were drawn. The study found out that the motivation of teachers is determined by a multiple of factors that included salary, training, working conditions and emotional strength. Further, the study found out that the motivation of teachers needed a multifaceted approach involving counseling, salaries and stipends
