How can I flourish as an ST? How to get started even? Is there a minimum number of years of service you must hit before being starting your ST-ship? The two STs in my school are from different department and not very friendly so I don't want to ask them. TIA
They usually expect the more experienced (read: older) teachers to be STs. Young STs do exist (youngest I met was 31), but they are very rare.

Can always take on LH portfolio and switch to ST later. Harder for ST to switch to LH/SH.

For ST portfolio, need to showcase pedagogical mastery and sharing of practices with other teachers.
