marker can't find my def!

I get error that the marker can't find "most_classes" but it is there... or am I missing something?

teachers.py
def most_classes(teacher_dict):
  max_count = 0
  busiest_teacher = 'None'

  for teacher in teacher_dict:
    num_classes = len(teacher_dict[entry])

    if num_classes > max_count:
      busiest_teacher = teacher
      max_count = num_classes      

  return busiest_teacher

Looks like you just had a mix up with the variable names:

# Change key from entry to teacher
num_classes = len(teacher_dict[teacher])

Damn!... that must have been it
