I am looking to find some international education partners who would be willing to open dialogue about teaching and learning theories and how they implement these in there classroom. Family and Consumer Science educators, Life Skills educators, Home Economics educators would all be welcome.

To access about 100,000 teachers in Latin America, many of them in secondary schools, go to: http://www.eduteka.org
This site is mostly in Spanish.
If you don't speak Spanish, then try ePals, which has K12 teachers in 200 countries. http://www.epals.com You can search by country, age, even subject area. (Be aware that "Family and Consumer Science" may have a different term in other countries so you may need to search on more specific units/content.)
You can get translation to 59 languages within ePals as well as free student email called SchoolMail too.
