This study sought to examine the influence of teachers’ welfare on their job performance in public secondary schools in Danko-Wasagu Local Government, Kebbi State, Nigeria. Using a mixed approach, the study employed descriptive correlational design. The population for the study was 384 teachers out of which the sample size of 196 respondents was drawn. Systematic random sampling was used to select respondents. The objectives were: to determine the level of teacher welfare; level of teachers’ job performance; to examine the relationship between teachers’ welfare and their job performance; and the influence of welfare on teachers’ job performance. Data was collected using a self-designed questionnaire which validity and reliability were confirmed through computation of content validity index (CVI) and Cronbach Alpha test which were found to be 0.76 and 0.81 respectively. The quantitative data was analysed using mean, Pearson’s linear correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis. The quantitative results revealed that the level of welfare for teachers is poor and the level of teachers’ job performance is moderate among others. The study concludes that, despite their reasonable job performance, employees’ welfare is poorly cared for. The study recommends among others, that the government and the school administrators should improve on the welfare scheme they offer to teachers to achieve quality secondary education through a high level teacher performance.
