Florida middle school teacher Dayanna Volitich has submitted her resignation weeks after she was outed as the voice behind a white supremacist podcast titled “Unapologetic.”

Volitich, 25, was removed from the classroom last month pending an investigation into her behavior by the Citrus County School District. On Monday, Assistant Superintendent Mike Mullen confirmed to CNN that the district received Volitich’s resignation. However, he said the decision won’t be final until it’s approved by the school board.

Approval of the resignation is expected to be on the agenda at the April 10 school board meeting, according to Mullen.

Volitich was a social studies teacher at Crystal Rivers Middle School, where she reportedly pushed her white nationalist ideals onto students. Online, she went under the pseudonym  “Tiana Dalichov, and authored a Twitter account riddled with racist posts and commentary. Her social media suddenly went dark, however, after a Huffingon Post report outed her as the one espousing racist views on the podcast, online and ultimately, in the classroom.

In a statement through her lawyer, Volitich acknowledged she was the one speaking as Dalichov on the podcast but claimed her comments were only “political satire and exaggeration” as a means of attracting more listeners. She went on describe the Russian persona as 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. ” … The views ‘Tiana Dalichov’ espouses do not pervade my professional career.”

Volitich’s lawyer hasn’t commented on her resignation.
