Dayanna Volitich, an educator at Crystal River Middle School, was the voice behind white nationalist podcast "Unapologetic", where she comfortably spewed her racist views under the pseudonym "Tiana Dalichov". Scott Hebert, executive director of educational services, told the outlet that they could not confirm that Dayanna Volitich was using this identity, but they would be "looking into the statements she made, checking the validity to see if they violate our code of ethics and policy".

"The teacher has been removed from the classroom and the investigation is ongoing", the school district said in a statement, declining to release more information until the probe is complete.

After HuffPost asked the school district about her, "Tiana Dalichov" tweeted that she "might disappear for a while", set her account to private and scrubbed the website for her podcast.

The Huffington Post reported on the podcast last week.

In the same episode, Volitich proudly discussed bringing her white nationalist beliefs into the classroom.

Volitich started to delete her content once the Huffington Post began asking questions, but the school has already started to investigate the allegations.

HuffPost inquired about Volitich's ideology to the Citrus County School District on Friday.

HuffPost secured screenshots. It also found that "Dalichov" listed her home as Crystal City, which matches Volitichs home in public records.

Toronto police to provide update on investigation of Bruce McArthur

"How sensitive things are, I don't think that was an appropriate action, even with freedom of speech", said Wesley Armitage, whose son attends Crystal River Middle School. 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.

"Children is very important", she said.

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

She said the principal believed her and backed off.

In an episode called Growth of Islam from her podcast, Ms Volitich - under the Tiana Dalichov pseudonym - calls it "scary" that "your political opinions all of a sudden have so much influence over your job", adding: "If you say something against Islam, and someone gets offended by what you have said, your job is literally on the line and oftentimes you will lose it". In the video, Volitich discusses her degree in "brain sciences", using the same vernacular that was written on the goodreads.com page.

Volitich has since directed all inquiries to her lawyer and says she will not offer further comments considering the pending investigation.

We will continue to update this story as more details become available.
