The results of this research show that the principal of SD Negeri Rahayu Kecamatan Jirak Kabupaten Musi Banyuasin has improved the work motivation and work discipline of the teachers who teach at the school he leads. Meanwhile, the efforts made to increase teacher work motivation include giving rewards to teachers who carry out their duties well and providing allowances or incentives to teachers who carry out their duties well. The principal tries to create a peaceful and pleasant school environment so that teachers are more motivated to improve performance, providing opportunities for teachers to advance by involving teachers in educational and training activities, workshops, and seminars in order to improve teacher performance and careers, as well as establishing harmonious relationships with teachers who teach, and providing opportunities for teachers who teach at SD Negeri Rahayu Kecamatan Jirak Kabupaten Musi Banyuasin to participate in the nomination for school principal.
