If you are a student in my course, you should expect to be respected, challenged, and to grow as a mathematician and communicator. I believe in the following four axioms for teaching and learning mathematics, and strive to let them inform all my teaching choices: in curriculum, pedagogy, and mentoring. The axioms below appeared in a 2016 article by Professor Federico Ardila, “Todos Cuentan”, in the *Notices of the American Mathematical Society*.

**Axiom 1. **Mathematical potential is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.

**Axiom 2.** Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.

**Axiom 3.** Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.

**Axiom 4.** Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
