Brittney’s Answer

Hi Michelle, as you get older and go into higher grades, the workload will increase. There are 2 reasons for this, 1. Since you are older you can handle learning on a steadier pace and 2. You gain responsibility with each oncoming grade, and are being prepared for your future ahead of you. So in short, I would say to expect a bigger workload with each new adventure that life brings your way. Hope this helps.

In my opinion, the workload varies on the number of subjects and students per class.

In elementary school, you have the basic classes (English, Math, Science) plus some elective classes (Art, Music, etc) that you will be assigning homework, classwork, and tests to one class of about 12-15 students. And you'll need a plan for every day for every class.

In middle school, you could be teaching only Math, but it could be Math for grades 6 and 7 or even 6,7, and 8. There will more students per class than an elementary classroom, but you are teaching one subject per grade. Unless a school wants you to teach dual courses, which does happen. As for lesson plans, you would most likely be teaching each class/section 3-4 times a week, so there are less lesson plans per class.
