This project examined some factors affecting the performances of chemistry teachers in senior secondary schools in Yola North LGA Adamawa State. The project exposes the relevance of paper qualification with teacher performance, the importance of integrating instructional materials and its increasing influence on teacher's performance. The study shows that instructional material is too important to both the teacher and students in teaching and learning of chemistry. In achieving standard long-lasting learning outcome, the teacher performance is vital and motivational system available to chemistry teachers affect their performances. In conclusion, paper qualification, the used of instructional materials and motivation system available to chemistry teachers in senior secondary schools greatly affect their performances.
