In a dictionary, the verb 'BE' has a number of definitions and forms:

BE [verb]

be    I am going to be watching the squirrels dance.
am    I am watching the squirrels dance.
is    She is watching the squirrels dance.
are   You are watching the squirrels dance.
was   She was watching the squirrels dance.
were  We were watching the squirrels dance.
been  They have been watching the squirrels dance.


Therefore you can correctly say 'I am', 'she is', 'you are', etc.

Is it ever grammatically correct to say 'I is'?
