What in Mandy's heart

Updated: Jun 25, 2020

Taking advantage of my one-on-one student‘a temporary anse this after,

I finally went out and announced the semester results which has been delayed for a total of four days after the final project ended.

It's very rare for me to give results so "late".

Anyone who knows me probably knows that I am a quick scorer.

I usually sent the score as soon as the last class accomplishes and then flew away the next day.

Anyway, I can't go anywhere this year,

then it dragged on like this.


With the ability of using excel to analyze data when I was in tsmc, It is just a piece of cake to deal with the calculation of semester results. However, what costs effort most is that every student has one’s own story, No function built in excel can handle the track of learning and growth among the learning journey.

I have to think twice and carefully as paying attention to fairness, considering about encouragement and also need to be careful not to hit the grades ceiling which cost a report writing.


In fact, the grades are representative.

However, if it‘s the only achievement of learning, then it might be too narrow.

Just like working is not just for money, otherwise it’s a pity.


There are too many valuable values ​​in life

can’t be expressed by "grade" nor measured by "money".


Grade achievement has its fairness, as well as money has its necessity. However, the joy of learning and the taste of life are both beyond the limitation of “numbers” !


I’m not a teacher who values ​​grades a lot,

I hope that the ability that students possess is beyond what numerous can measure.

I am a teacher who love teaching, and always thinking about how to let students learn useful thingsas having fun in it.What I pursuit has nothing to do with numbers.

People who are good at handling numbers don’t have to live in numbers. Numbers can not give the power of enjoying from heart.

People who give grades, appraise performance, have lots of money are not necessarily those deserve respect and admiration. And we all deserve a better life more than numbers.

It’s ok to do something without money,

but for soulless works, no way to do!!


趁著今天下午一對一的學生臨時請假,

我總算一鼓作氣把成績算完公告出去了。

離期末報告結束,總共拖了四天。


對我來說,這麼「晚」給成績,

是很罕見的。

認識我的人大概都知道我是成績快手,

通常都是交大最後一堂課前腳一結束,

我後腳就當天把成績送出去,

然後搭隔天的飛機飛走。


反正今年是哪裡都去不了,

也就這麼拖拖拉拉了起來。


在tsmc用Excel分析資料的能力,

用在學期成績的計算上,只是一塊小蛋糕。

花費心神的是,

每一個學生都有自己的故事,

一路走來歷歷在目,學習與成長的軌跡,

不是內建的那些函式可以處理的。

必得斟酌再三,小心翼翼,

注意著公平性,考量著鼓勵性,

還要小心不要碰到得寫報告的天花板。



其實,成績是有代表性的。

但是,學習的目的如果只是成績,

那也太過狹隘。

就好比工作如果只是為了錢,

那麼實在有點可惜。


人生中有太多可貴的價值,

是沒有辦法用「成績」來表現,

更無法用「錢」來衡量的。


成績有其公正性,財富有其必要性。

但是,學習的樂趣,人生的況味,

那裡是這些數字可以匡限的?!


我不是一個重視成績的老師,

我希望學生擁有的能力是成績無法衡量的。

我是一個喜歡教學的老師,

總想著怎麼讓學生學有用的東西,

同時學得開心。

這些也跟數字無關。


善於處理數字的人,

不一定要活在數字裡。


樂在其中的力量,數字給不了。

給成績的人,打考績的人,有錢的人,

不一定就是了不得的人。

何苦把自己活窄了,活矮了,活苦了。


做沒錢的事,可以,

沒靈魂的工,不做。
