    Do teachers' self-confidence / or does teachers' self-condfidence ...?

    Do students' acdemic failure/ or does students' academic failure?

    Re: what do we say?

    You need to work out whether "self-confidence" and "academic failure" are singular or plural. That will give you the answer. The fact that "students" is plural is irrelevant.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you. I think self-confidence and academic failure are singular? aren't they?
