I need help

I got this message Didn't get the right number of teachers!

# The dictionary will look something like:
# {'Andrew Chalkley': ['jQuery Basics', 'Node.js Basics'],
#  'Kenneth Love': ['Python Basics', 'Python Collections']}
# Each key will be a Teacher and the value will be a list of courses.
# Your code goes below here.
def num_teachers(dicts):
    most_class = ""
    max_count = 0 
    for teacher in dicts:
        if len (dicts[teacher]) > max_count:
            max_count = len (dicts[teacher])
            most_class = teacher
    return most_class

is this function supposed to count the number of teachers(keys) in the dictionary? the code you posted returns the name of the teacher who is teaching the most courses. the code you posted yesterday worked fine for me by the way.
