Constellation donates $1 million to Teach For America

Constellation said Thursday that it is giving Teach For America $1 million for efforts in Baltimore over the next four years, from training teachers to helping program alumni fight poverty.

The Baltimore division of Chicago-based Exelon Corp. said it has donated about $465,000 to Teach For America since 1994.

Exelon agreed to donate an average of $7 million a year in Maryland for a decade as part of its acquisition of Constellation Energy Group.

Constellation said its CEO, Kenneth Cornew, is guest-teaching in a science class at East Baltimore's Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/Middle School Thursday in honor of Teach For America Week. He planned to give a lesson about energy, with hands-on work stations on solar panels, turbine design and electricity.
