    I am to/about/supposed to go.

    Dear teachers,
    I know that
    "I am about to go."
    "I am supposed to go." are correct.

    But how about this? "I am to go."; which means I am going to go. I remember one of my teacher taught me that but later I think I heard that it was wrong which I am not certain about.

    Please, give your opinions.

    Thanks.
