Teaching is a dynamic and interpersonal job, thus teachers are strongly influenced by the social environment within which they live and operate. These social and personal factors also influence teachers motivation to give their best at work. Motivational level of teachers is widely stated to be a major factor which determines the efficacy of the teaching of learning process, thus it is very important to study the influence of personal and social factors on the motivation of school teachers. Studies have been conducted on the various societal factors that influence teacher motivation but the influence and the nature of influence of each personal and societal factor on the motivation of school teachers has not been significantly studied. In order to design a school which acts as a behavioral system and motivates all stakeholders including teachers to give their best at work one has to study in depth the influence of the societal and personal factors related to teachers and their influence on the motivational levels of teachers. This study seeks to do that. The study included a random sample of teachers (N = 111). The results of the survey were analyzed by SPSS 17.0. A principal component analysis extracted three factors: namely Physiological and Safety factors, Happiness factors and Esteem factors. The study sought to provide an analysis of how these factors influence teacher motivation.
