Teaching is a rewarding but demanding profession. Teachers are prone to burnout due to long hours of teaching and a heavy workload. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between teachers’ workload, burnout, and job performance. In this quantitative study, the descriptive-correlational design was used. The respondents of the study were the 57 elementary teachers selected through convenient and purposive sampling. The Role Overload Questionnaire, Burnout Questionnaire, and Individual Performance Commitment and Review Form (IPCRF) were used in this study. The statistical tools used in the study were the Mean, Standard Deviation, and Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient. The findings revealed that teachers have a high level of workload. Their burnout level is also high. Teachers’ work performance, on the other hand, is very satisfactory. Workload has a significant impact on the level of burnout experienced by teachers. Workload has an impact on teachers’ performance as well. To avoid stress and burnout, it is recommended that every school administrator adhere to proper workload assignment.
