Abstract: This study was carried out to investigate teachers' motivation and academic performance of students. To establish the types of motivation used in Anjego mixed secondary school. To determine whether the methods of motivation used contribute to academic performance in the school. From the research study, it was evident that there existed a notable relationship between a teacher motivation and academic performance of students in the subject handled by the same teacher. It was note -worthy that rewards given to teachers boosted their morale and this subsequently improved student's performance. Verbal praises have noted to be almost trivial as compared to material rewards, promotions and financial rewards. From the study, it was found that when teachers were rewarded, they worked harder and this motivated disinterested learners to learn and also preserved and fostered the enthusiasm of those who were interested in learning. Therefore, extrinsic motivation plays significant role in determining the performance of students in academic. The study recommended that the government, through the TSC, should work closely with the heads of schools (both primary and secondary) in order to ear mark industrious teachers for promotions. Prize giving ceremonies should be held in schools on termly basis to reward teachers and students for their good performance. The government and the heads of schools should over-relief on extrinsic motivation as opposed to intrinsic motivation
