An incredible time saver!
This spreadsheet inserts student names into your personal comments and exchanges pronouns (he/she), allowing you to easily reuse comments for multiple students. This spreadsheet will make your comment writing personalized yet efficient.
Note: Since sometimes her --> him but sometimes her --> his, this replaces instances of 'her' with 'hi__' and has the user manually make the appropriate choice.

When ~ puts her mind to it, he really exerts herself. Good work, ~.
When Jane puts her mind to it, she really exerts herself. Good work, Jane.
When John puts his mind to it, he really exerts himself. Good work, John.
You will have access to a google spreadsheet (the link is in the text document).
Full list of substitutions:
he’s/she’s AND he's/she's
*This will always work going from a male comment to a female comment, and will create instances of 'hi__' in male comments.
This does not replace girl/boy (I thought you might want to keep these nouns in some contexts).
Thanks for your interest!
