Vowel Challenge Isn't Returning a Correct Answer

I don't understand why I'm getting this wrong. The code below works on my own computer.

disemvowel.py
def disemvowel(word):
    vowels = "AEIOU"
    for letter in word:
        if letter.Upper() in vowels:
            word = word.replace(letter, "")
    return word

You must have an unusual Python implementation.

Because normally method names are case-sensitive, and "upper" is spelled with a lower-case "u". The challenge certainly requires it that way.

Wow, thank you! I knew this and was using lowercase on my computer, but didn't see the title case in Treehouse. Can't believe I spent so much time trying to figure this out.
