Abstract

A considerable amount of literature has been published on foreign language learners’ motivation while, although it is acknowledged that teachers play a crucial role in handling students’ motivation and it is proved that motivated teachers positively influence learners’ engagement in the learning process, far too little attention has been paid to language teachers’ motivation. Therefore, it is our will to explore this issue in order to foster the research on it. This article presents the results of a quantitative study we have conducted in Italy. We have collected data through an online questionnaire and, taking into account several scientific principles and theories, we have investigated teachers’ motivation through the analysis of: initial job motivation, a set of work values and rewards, job satisfaction and career satisfaction. Eventually, findings are discussed, and suggestions for further research are provided.
