The Diamond Bar High School campus has been a “second home” for class of 1998 alumni Mike Bromberg, who has spent 15 years at the school. He returned as the operations manager of the school on January 18.

He previously worked as a Regional Operational Program woodshop teacher from 2004 to 2014, but took a two year break from the school to work as a carpenter and electrician for the district.

He follows in the footsteps of Eric Gossett, the first operations manager of Diamond Bar High School.

“I’m excited. I’ve always admired Mr. Eric Gossett, who was the operations manager for many, many years, and now that I have the opportunity to be in his shoes, I am honored,” Bromberg said.

The operations manager has the role of ensuring campus safety and cleanliness for all students, and is in charge of various safety drills, disaster preparation and student health. In addition, Bromberg is in charge of the custodial staff, and manages equipment, textbook and supplies. He also has the task of overseeing the school budget and projects such as the swimming pool installed in the school two years ago.

“My goal is to bring back the campus to more beautiful standards and to make sure everything safety is addressed,” Bromberg said. “Just make it a great place to teach.”
