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.
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.

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.
