Happy Thursday! Here's your daily report.

Dear Fort Worth Report friend,

Good morning! 

In your Thursday Report: Ana Martinez Shropshire knows the impact teachers can have on a student’s life. If it were not for a couple of teachers who saw her abilities, she may not have become the executive director of IDEA Public Schools Tarrant County. Reporter Jacob Sanchez talks to Shropshire about her time as a student and leading a charter school network.

Also, west Fort Worth is growing rapidly, and so is the congestion. Reporter Kristen Barton has details on how transportation officials are racing to catch up to the problem and whether existing plans are enough to reach the finish line.
