Teacher’s motivation plays a key role in their career success, so enough motivation sources can be fruitful in enhancing teaching skills. In order to find the possible differences between the institution teachers and public-school teachers, the present study was initiated. It was also aimed to compare the motivation sources in their teaching context. So, English teachers’ motivation was measured regarding their intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Only 33 teachers in Ahar city delivered questionnaires to the researcher. An independent samples t-test was run to analyze the gathered data. The results suggest that there is a significant difference between two types of teachers. In fact, teachers in private institutions have more motivation than public school teachers. It was also found that teachers feel they receive very limited motivation from some contextual sources. The findings of present study indicate that education system, school managers and supervisors need to motivate teachers toward teaching English.
