A Florida middle school teacher submitted her resignation after a report surfaced that she hosted a white supremacist podcast called, “Unapologetic,” CNN reports.
Dayanna Volitch, 25, taught social studies at Crystal River Middle School in Crystal River, Fla. The Huffington Post in March reported that she was the host of a national podcast under the pseudonym “Tiana Dalichov,” and that she bragged about teaching her views in a public school. During an episode on Feb. 26, she argued that “science” has proven that some races are smarter than others.
The Citrus County School District removed Volitch from the classroom when Huffington Post notified it of the podcast. Volitch at the time said her comments were “political satire and exaggeration” and the persona was a “hobby.”
"None of the statements released about my being a white nationalist or white supremacist have any truth to them, nor are my political beliefs injected into my teaching of social studies curriculum," she said in a statement provided to CNN.
Citrus County School District assistant superintendent Mike Mullen told CNN that the resignation is not final until the school board accepts it during an April 10 meeting.
