Michael Maze is a table tennis legend from Denmark. He is a left-handed player known for his strong forehand loops and fantastic defensive lobs and sidespin shots. He was one of the last European players who could beat a Chinese. Most people remember Michael Maze for one of the greatest comebacks in the history of table tennis against Hao Shuai at 2005 World Championship in Shangai when he was losing 0:3 in sets and eventually win 4:3.

For such a tall player he is very agile. His footwork combined with his length enables him to get to shots most others wouldn't be able to make. Combined with those backhand shots... holy crap!
What I also found amazing was how many players found his high backhand topspin balls so difficult to finish. Very often they hit it JUST behind the net and after a few times of Maze returning it again somehow they just couldn't do it.
Maze was a good player, not world class although he did reach the semi-finals of the 2005 world championships where he got crushed 4-0 by Ma Lin but in Europe, he was quite accomplished. He might have gone further but he did have some injury problems that needed surgical intervention.
The man was a good player and played what I call an "attractive game" and was very entertaining to watch just really couldn't mix it with the top guys when he got to the championship rounds,but a good player no doubt.
He is the most entertaining and explosively talented table tennis player I have ever seen! Even being more of a showboating player he has had a pretty good career- 1 olympic bronze,WTTC bronze,European champion.
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
