ABSTRACT
This study examined the impact of biology teachers on the performance of students in secondary schools in Osun State, Nigeria. This study sample included forty-eight (48) secondary schools, selected by random sampling technique. The researcher designed teachers’ questionnaire which were administered to one hundred forty-five (145) biology teachers. Researcher-designed validated questionnaire was used to elicit information from the respondents on the impact of biology teachers to the performance of students. Three research questions and two research hypotheses were formulated. Frequency counts and t-test statistics were used to analysis the data collected. Findings of this study revealed that the impact of biology teachers to teaching in Secondary Schools was significant. It was also revealed that there was a significant existence based on the gender, but it was revealed that the impact of biology teachers on students’ performance in secondary schools was not significant based on years of teaching experience. Based on the research findings, recommendations were made on how the biology teachers would have a positive impact on students’ performance in senior secondary schools.
