About Pat and the Geezum Crow Blog.

I am a young Latin teacher in Northern Vermont. All four of those elements – my youth, my teaching, Latin, and Vermont – influence my perspective on the things that I write about here. On occasion I will write about some of the other things I am passionate about: Language, progressive politics, biking and hiking, bread baking, and reading.

Geezum Crow is just an interjection¬†that I use often. According to the coasters at Vermont Pub and Brewery (a Wikipedia-worthy source if there ever was one!), the Geezum Crow is Vermont’s State Bird. Truly though, it is Vermont vernacular; a minced-oath euphemism for Jesus Christ, like “Jeepers Creepers” or “Jiminy Cricket.”
