The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of TSC human resource management practices on teachers’ commitment in Tetu Sub County, Nyeri. This study adopted a descriptive survey research design, the target population comprised of all the 12 principals and 191 teachers from which 133 teachers and principals were selected. The study used a self administered questionnaire to gather primary data. Internal consistency method was determined using Cronbach’s Alpha and lastly quantitative data was analyzed through descriptive statistics using frequencies and percentages. The study showed that TSC’s teacher performance appraisal (TPA) system for new and experienced teachers is designed to: promote teacher development; provide meaningful appraisals of teachers’ performance that encourage professional learning and growth; identify opportunities for additional support where required; and provide a measure of accountability to the public. The study recommends that evaluation processes carried out by TSC should reflects what is needed to change to enhance commitment in teachers for more students to succeed.
