According to the Huff Post, 25-year-old social studies teacher Dayanna Volitich spends her free time producing a white nationalist podcast, and in one recent episode, Volitich admitted to using her position to attempt influencing her students.
Dayanna Volitich, a social studies educator at Crystal River Middle School, bragged about teaching her ideology in the classroom — and getting away with it — during a recent episode of “Unapologetic,” HuffPost reported Saturday.
“I’ve had a couple instances where parents were concerned,” Volitich said in the Feb. 26 episode, under the pseudonym Tiana Dalichov.
Volitich goes on to explain that after one parent complained to the school principal, Volitich lied and said there was nothing to be concerned about:
“One, at the beginning of the year, emailed the principal over my head. ‘I’m worried that your teacher, she’s injecting political bias,’ ” the 25-year-old recalled.
She said that the Crystal River principal, whose school is about 70 miles north of Tampa, confronted her about the parent’s concern and asked, “Should I be worried?”
Volitich answered no and the principal dropped the issue.
But the young teacher admitted on her podcast that in fact there was reason for concern:
In the same episode where Volitich described peppering curriculum with white nationalism, she appeared to agree with a guest calling on far-right listeners to infiltrate academics as teachers.
“They don’t have to be vocal about their views, but get in there, be more covert and start taking over. That’s what the left did,” said Lana Lokteff, who has been described as one of the few, but very outspoken, women in the white nationalist movement.
“We have to take that institution back. Children are very important. Communists always knew that. They wanted the minds of children because that is the future,” Lokteff said. “If we could have more teachers in those positions, that would be great.”
Volitich then said she is one of those teachers.
“I’m absolutely one of them,” Dalichov said.
