Florida teacher removed from classroom after being linked to white supremacist podcast

Dayanna, 25, is a teacher at Crystal River Middle School in Florida

On Sunday, the Citrus County School District announced that the teacher, Dayanna Volitich, has been removed from the classroom while the investigation proceeds. "That's it", said a neighbor who was surprised by the report.

In her latest podcast, she bragged about being called out by parents for teaching White supremacy and convincing her superior that the students were lying.

She used the same alias in appearances on fringe YouTube channels. Her tweets as "Tiana Dalichov" suggest otherwise, however: Crystal River Middle School is a majority white school.

"You should not have any biases when you're a teacher".

Meanwhile, she has been removed from the classroom while the school board investigates the allegations.

Dayanna Volitich has been removed from the school pending an investigation. The writer was promoting her new podcast and encouraging people to write-in arguments proving "one single instance of white privilege", arguing it doesn't exist, and if someone can prove it they will get $100. In the 2015-2016 school year, according to figures provided by the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly 90 percent of the school's enrolled students identified as white, with only about 4 percent of the students identifying as black and 3 percent as Hispanic.

"So many other researchers have already looked into this. There are races that have higher IQs than others".

The report includes a 16-minute excerpt from a February 26 podcast on which "Dalichov", talks with a guest about white nationalists infiltrating schools.

"It's not almost as bloody as a battlefield, but it's pretty darn close", she says. Volitich has since said that the podcast was "satire".

"I am pretty aware, hyper-aware that they will be watching, and that they will be listening".

"She believed me and backed off", she said.

She said she would have no further comment due to the ongoing investigation by the district.

Volitich talks openly about being a public school teacher but has not revealed where she works.

Anxious about a teacher's private political beliefs - even ones so disgusting as these - getting her fired?

Volitich has not responded to repeated HuffPost attempts to contact her. The principal of her school approached her via email to discuss the matter. "However, we are looking into the facts concerning that issue and it is now part of this investigation".

'She does not speak on behalf of the Citrus County School District, ' Hebert said.

"Many white supremacists across America today lead double lives, advocating loudly and anonymously for white supremacy and fascism online while holding down respectable jobs and doing their best to keep their online lives hidden", HuffPost reporters wrote.
