Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
1. Are these sentences correct:
a) "You shouldn't speak like that, and as a teacher, you should try to WIN YOUR STUDENTS' EMPATHY."
b) "You shouldn't speak like that, and as a teacher, you should try to FALL UNDER YOUR STUDENTS' GRACES."
2. Is there is any other way of expressing this idea?

1. Not quite.
a) "You shouldn't speak like that. As a teacher, you should try to win your students over." That would be far more natural.
b) That isn't real English. Fall under graces? No-one would say that and I have no idea what you'd be trying to say.

Get rid of the conjunction "and." Make the two separate thoughts two separate sentences of equal weight. Try:
You shouldn't speak like that. As a teacher you should try to win over your students.
