Dr. Glover was an Associate Professor in Foundations and Secondary Education in the John H. Lounsbury College of Education for many years. She regularly taught EDFS 2224, the Introduction to Education course, and was particularly interested in the development of "emerging teaching professionals."

The following was written by Dr. Les Crawford, former dean of the College of Education:

Janet Glover not only was the organist for the Presbyterian Church in Eatonton, but she had a lovely voice and sang in the Robert Shaw Chorale in Atlanta when they first moved here.  At the time, Janet was supervising student teachers in the Atlanta area for us.  She did a lot of supervision at first and was tough!

Dr. Glover, besides her music background, had a degree in Biology and was certified to teach science in high school.  So, she often supervised students in the secondary level, science and even music, and most of the supervision came out of the SOE and the Supervision Office.  Janet had even started and ran a pre-school or kindergarten at one time in her life and had developed a very good background in the area.

Janet, really "codified" the Orientation course, and made it a worthwhile course. She worked with people across the state who were working in High Schools to developing two-year internships in teacher-education. Students in recognized programs were to be exempted from the Orientation Class.  It was Janet's work and Janet's class that was the model for this program.  While it had been going on before, Janet actually refined and extended it, to make it more consistent.

Dr. Glover became our first certification person for undergraduates, and did a fabulous job.  It was here she shone! I had so many students tell me how much she had helped them and how much empathy she had for them.  She was doing this and teaching the orientation class at the time of her last illness. We kept in contact with her in the Augusta hospital by phone, and it was unbelievable to see how fast she went.

She was a dear, dear person.  I had developed a great respect for her and appreciation of her as a truly caring individual. Les Crawford

The Janet Glover Outstanding Pre-Education Major Award recognizes a sophomore level student who possesses exemplary potential for the profession of teaching. To qualify the student must:
    1.  be recommended by a faculty member who teaches the EDUC courses; 
    2.  possess a minimum GPA of 3.0; and
    3.  possess outstanding dispositions for teaching as outlined in INTASC Standards I, II, IX and X, and as evidenced by comments drawn from the evaluation form completed by the Field-Based Experience host teacher.

This award is not necessarily an annual award, but rather is given as appropriate when the right candidate is identified.
