I agree is correct.

You could also say "I am in agreement."

This is not generally what you say when something pleases you (for that you simply say, "That pleases me,") but rather when it matches what you yourself believe to be true.

By the way, you apparently live in a country where people treat their teachers with deep respect. That pleases me!

There's no rule, since "I'm agree" is incorrect.

Yes, but the original poster (or whoever taught him) may have misheard the less common 'I'm agreed' - which occurs sometimes, especially in the plural: Are we all agreed?

Yes, I agree that if the poster had asked a different question, a different answer might have been more appropriate.

The point is that a learner sometimes doesn't know how near he/she is to being right. Answering just the question posed isn't always very helpful.
