# Unsure of where I'm going wrong, teachers.py step 5/5

I can feel I'm close. I'm just not sure what I'm missing.

No answers please, just a hint in the right direction would be great!

teachers.py
# 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(teachers):
count = 0
for teacher in teachers:
count += 1

return count

def num_courses(courses):
count = 0
for i in courses:
count += len(courses[i])
return count

def courses(courses):
count = []
for i in courses:
count += courses[i]
return count

def most_courses(teacher):
leader = 0
teacherMost = ""
for i in teacher:
if len(teacher[i]) > leader:
leader = len(teacher[i])
teacherMost = i
return teacherMost

def stats(teacher):
stats = []
for i in teacher:
stats += [i, len(teacher[i])]

return stats

Hi there, David!

You're very close to the solution, but if you'd like a clue, it has to do with this line:

stats += [i, len(teacher[i])]

+= is used for adding integers to integers, not appending items to a list.

Hope this makes it slightly clearer for you!

Let me know if you need further help!

James.
